COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY FORUM AND ACADEMIC CONFERENCE CENTER

COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY FORUM AND ACADEMIC CONFERENCE CENTER

The gateway to the new Manhattanville campus, the University Forum is a multipurpose venue on the bustling corner of 125th and Broadway. The Forum will host academic conferences, meetings, and symposia, providing an important new space where scholars and thought-leaders from many fields can come together to share ideas.

The Forum features a state-of-the-art 430-seat auditorium, providing the kind of generous shared meeting space that Columbia has historically lacked. The building also boasts meeting rooms, faculty offices, and open gathering spaces.

Located at the iconic crossroads of Broadway and 125th Street, The University Forum will have special resonance for an intellectually diverse Columbia faculty whose work reflects a broad and deep expertise in the culture, history, and current issues facing Harlem.
