The Off-Campus Housing Assistance Office helps Columbia students and affiliates in their search for rental housing in non-Columbia-owned buildings located in the metropolitan area. These accommodations are not subject to inspection or approval by the University.

OCHA maintains a database known as the Housing Registry which contains listings of rooms and apartments in non-Columbia-owned buildings in NYC, which prospective roommates can also use to post and search roommate profiles. OCHA offers housing search counseling and has created a webinar about apartment hunting.
