when you say single, do you mean a non-roommate situation (studio or one-bedroom)?


I said single to differentiate myself from those who applied for couples housing, and I got a studio, assuming tecumseh meant the same

Same situation for me. By looking at last year's thread, seems like we should get our assignments within the next day or so


soooo now i'm going to be hitting refresh on my gmail like it's october and i'm waiting for my LSAT score.


Same here. It was approved in the last couple of hours because I had checked on it earlier today. Hoping for some good news soon!

Super jealous. Still waiting for that email hoping for a single. Do you mind sharing what building you were given?

I would ask about that in the Columbia 1Ls question thread- they might know.

Is anyone planning on having a pet in university housing? The website is quite clear that they are not allowed, and someone in housing reiterated that to me over the phone. She said it's non-negotiable. I'm reading stuff from past threads where people were saying it's openly tolerated, and that people in housing even told them it was fine...the response I got from them the other day is making me nervous, though.

I'm not planning on having a pet, but I imagine its all relative -- like cats n fish in the apt no one will notice, but if you are taking a mastiff out for a poop daily you may have some issues.

The old threads, as far as I remember, suggest it's different for law-only housing and UAH housing, with the latter being more open to pets.

Are other people still waiting on an email from UAH after getting a status change saying you've been approved and the info has been sent?

Got my housing assignment! UAH apartment share, got almost everything I want and I'm super close to the law school. Pretty excited.

Does anyone know anything about 405 W. 118th St? Can't seem to find anything about the size or building online.

Hi all,

Sorry for yet another housing question. Unfortunately, there seems to next to nothing in terms of quality information on housing at Columbia. A few photo's and floorplans wouldn't hurt especially for those of us coming from overseas!

Anyway, I was assigned a couple, 1 bedroom apartment at 400 west 119th street (Butler Hall). Does any have any comments on this building?

Thanks
sg8
