About your University ID Card
The University ID Card is your passport to Columbia. It grants you access to the Library and secure campus locations, allows you to purchase services at campus cafes and the University bookstore, and enables you to take advantage of cultural discount programs in New York City.
ID Center Location
ID Center (Morningside)
210 Kent Hall
New York, NY 10027
Updated Hours: The Student Service and ID Center in 210 Kent Hall will be open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Tuesday, 9:00am to 4:00pm
Of special note for the fall opening is that students, Faculty, and staff are now REQUIRED to upload ID photos prior to coming to Kent Hall to obtain their ID Cards. Photos cannot be taken at the ID center. This requirement is designed to reduce the numbers of people visiting the ID Center.
Printed and digital transcripts and academic certifications can be ordered through Parchment in Student Services Online. All requests for such services can also be submitted to [email protected] or 212-854-4400. Apostille service is available by appointment ONLY - you may bring the document in person to 210 Kent, mail it to us, or scan and email documents to [email protected] to begin the process, which will require making an appointment with our notary who is not on site daily.
Please note that we are closed on University Holidays.
