Community Hour

Columbia is more than a University – it’s a community.

Long a center of campus academic and social activity, the Faculty House team has been proud to host gatherings for members of campus to come together. Whether it’s daily lunch, mid-day concerts, an afternoon lecture series, or special evening events, we’re here to make every day moments a special occasion.

One of the small ways we support coming together is through a tradition called Community Hour. During the academic year (and sometimes in summer too!) the Faculty House team hosts a monthly community hour - a time to wind down and socialize with your colleagues and other Columbia community members. Community hour is typically held in the Ivy Lounge or in the summer on the Skyline Level terrace.

We look forward to welcoming back the campus community for the 2021-22 Academic Year. Stay tuned for opportunities to get together again.
