Officers of administration in grades 14 and above who live outside the borough of Manhattan are eligible for commuter parking privileges in the University’s parking facilities.  As University parking is limited, we suggest that you apply as soon as possible.  Parking applications are available online here.  The University Parking Committee generally meets monthly to review the parking wait list and make assignments based on the availability of parking spaces.

University parking is available in the IAB garage located at West 118th Street between Amsterdam and Morningside Drive under the School of International and Public Affairs or in the 560 Riverside Drive garage located at West 125th Street and Riverside Drive.  Should you wish to be placed on the parking wait list for either facility, please complete the online application. 


Local Garages

Staff who are not eligible for university parking may want to review the list of commercial garages in the area as well as New York City’s street parking regulations.   Here is a list of commercial garages in the area to assist you in your search.

The MTP parking garage at 635 West 131st Street has reserved spaces for Columbia employees on a first come, first served basis.  You can contact the MTP garage manager at (212) 368-2579 for more information.

Important note: The parking lot at Fairway is for Fairway customers only.  If you park at Fairway, you will most likely be towed at your own expense.
