Columbia University is easily accessible from John F. Kennedy (JFK) International, Newark International (EWR), and LaGuardia (LGA) airports (LGA serves domestic flights only). Average one-way taxi fare to Columbia, or to area hotels, is approximately $60 from JFK or Newark, or $35 from LaGuardia. Taxis within New York City--covering those from both JFK and LaGuardia Airports--are required to take credit cards. Taxis from Newark Airport may require cash payment. Train and car service options are also available. If you take a taxi from the airport, please use an authorized taxi from a taxi stand at the airport.
From within Manhattan, Columbia University is served by the number 1 subway train (red line) at the 116th St. stop. Please note that the 2 and 3 trains on the red line do not serve Columbia.
Both hotel and dormitory options will be made available for ICELW participants. Details will be provided in January.
