Make the Most of Your Summer Experience

The Columbia University Summer Session offers students curated educational, social, and cultural experiences to connect students with each other and University faculty, as well as organized visits to New York City landmarks and institutions.

Students are encouraged to attend special lectures, activities and social events on campus, as well as participate in city-wide excursions to Broadway, historic sites, and cruises, among other destinations. 

Access to Perks Around the City

In addition to learning from respected scholars and gaining access to university facilities, Summer Session students receive a Columbia University ID which grants them access to hundreds of the city’s institutions at free and discounted rates.
