Columbia University Off-Campus Housing

Spread across more than six city blocks in Morningside Heights, Columbia University is the intellectual center of the Upper West Side. As the oldest institute of higher learning in New York City, it provides its students with an academic home in one of the busiest corners of the city. However, some students may choose to live off campus during their time at Columbia. When seeking Columbia University off-campus housing, Marquis Apartments are a great choice for students who want to remain close by school while still having a comfortable, off-campus haven in a convenient location.

The Marquis Apartments

Our beautiful off-campus housing for Columbia University has available studio, one bedroom, two bedroom, and three bedroom apartments. The apartments are spacious with large windows and closets, and many of the rooms overlook either Central Park or the Hudson River. The building also features top-of-the-line amenities, including modern stainless steel appliances, a full-time doorman, in-building laundry, and an on-site garage parking. All of our Upper West Side luxury rentals are also only a short walk away from the A, B, C, 1, 2 and 3 trains.

Our apartments are located in two no-fee buildings: The James Marquis and The West Side Marquis buildings. Both are adjacent to Central Park West, as well as a range of grocery stores, banks and bodegas.

Living on the Upper West Side

The Upper West Side sits between the Hudson River on one side and Central Park on the other and has built a reputation as the center of some of New York City’s best culture. It features some of New York’s most important museums, like the American Museum of Natural History and the New-York Historical Society, and its most important artistic institutions, like Lincoln Center and Central Park’s Delacorte Theater. The area is also home to great food and drink: Jacob’s Pickles has legendary southern comfort food, and Flor de Mayo makes some of New York’s best Chinese-Peruvian Chifa cuisine. After dinner, you can grab some dessert at Momofuku Milk Bar, a drink with free popcorn at The Dead Poet, or drop in on some live music at Prohibition.
