The Office of Student Life

The Office of Student Life aims to immerse students in professionally grounded activities that grow development through community engagement and networking.

We guide engagement with student organizations on campus and virtually. The Office of Student Life promotes community growth via school-wide events, identifying housing and a quality residential life experience, and developing leadership skills via co-curricular programming.

Additionally, the Office of Student Life provides resources to enhance physical and mental health, as well as advance discourse on critical topics pertaining to equity and inclusion. We advocate for the well-being and development of each student.

Health Services

Medical Services assists Columbia students when a sudden, serious illness or injury requires immediate care. Visiting students with medical problems can receive care at Health Services on an as-needed basis within business hours. Because Health Services requires its patients to have submitted their health information, students who have not already completed and returned a health form should do so as soon as possible. Program staff will coordinate all student Health Services visits; sick or injured students should communicate medical needs to an RA or program coordinator ASAP. If students are in need of after-hours care or emergency services, program staff will take students to St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital.
