To help students gain access to the cultural resources of New York City, Columbia University has established the CU Arts Initiative. In addition to free and discounted tickets to theatres, concerts, lectures and other opportunities, students receive free admission to over thirty city museums (including MoMA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Morgan Library, just to name several of the most famous) through the “Passport to Museums” program.
On campus, the Miller Theatre, in partnership with Columbia University School of the Arts, is dedicated to producing and presenting unique events, with a focus on contemporary and early music, jazz, opera, and multimedia performances.
The Graduate Student Lounge in Philosophy Hall is available for use by GSAS students.
