Since September 11, 2001, New York City has been under a heightened security alert.
While there have been no specific threats indicating Columbia University as a potential target of a terrorist act, it is important to be prepared in these difficult times. Columbia has procedures in place in the event of an emergency related to current international events.
Information will be available and updated on the Columbia homepage, as well as through campus-wide emails and voice mails, if and when appropriate. The main University telephone number, 212-854-1754, will provide brief recorded announcements and direct callers to current information. For families of students, a toll-free telephone number, 877-905-4667, has been established to provide information in the event of a serious crisis.
