Graduate students have a number of housing opportunities in the Morningside Heights neighborhood. The three main sources are University Apartment Housing (UAH), International House, and off-campus listings. UAH operates Columbia-owned apartments and dormitory-style suites in the Morningside area within walking distance of the campus. For further information, students should visit UAH's Web site at http://www.columbia.edu/cu/ire/stumsc.html.
International House, a privately owned student residence near the campus, has accommodations for about 500 graduate students, both international and American, who attend various area colleges and universities. It provides a supportive and cross-cultural environment with many activities and resources, and it is conveniently located three blocks from the engineering building.

There are also a number of off-campus housing opportunities. The University operates the Off-Campus Housing Assistance (OCHA) program, which lists rooms and apartments in rental properties not owned or operated by the University.
