CU Extends Sympathy, Maintains Security Precautions

The University extends its deepest condolences to the victims of the recent acts of terrorism in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, and its sympathy to the people of Egypt. 

We also want to reassure members of the Columbia community that the University remains committed to maintaining a secure and open environment that fosters learning and is continuing an enhanced level of security on campus. In addition to increased foot and mobile patrols, the University continues to be in direct conversation with the NYPD and local Precinct Commanders.  

If you are concerned or see any suspicious activity, please call the NYC tip hotline at (888) NYC-SAFE. For NYC Police or Fire emergencies, dial 911.

On campus, please use the following contact numbers for Public Safety:

  • Morningside: on campus- 99 / off campus- 854-5555
  • Medical Center: on campus- 7-7979 / off campus- 305-8100

Any updates or special notices will be posted on the Columbia University home page, at www.columbia.edu. Updates on national security efforts can be found at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Web site, at www.dhs.gov.
