About Our Residence Hall Lounges

Columbia's Residence Hall lounges provide beautiful spaces for Columbia students and authorized groups to host small gatherings, including meetings, seminars, performances and more. Lounge-type seating is available in each space, and additional furniture can be rented. Several lounges provide a piano for performance-use.

Recognized Student Groups need an Event Management System (EMS) account to book space and services.
