UIIS Access

The Columbia Global Centers are located in nine countries and provide the University with a worldwide network of expertise that facilitates engagement, research, and learning for students, faculty, and the public. The nine Global Centers—Amman, Beijing, Istanbul, Mumbai, Nairobi, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, and Tunis—are welcoming students with upgraded technology, equipment, and full-time, onsite, trained staff. The University has also arranged for dedicated space for its students in Tel Aviv and in Athens, when conditions allow. We also offer access passes to Columbia students in 80+ cities to use at any WeWork location in their city.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to access any of these locations, students must first register here. You must register even if you did so in the fall or spring. The registration process for summer term access has changed, so please see the updated FAQ for current information.
