>> Campus Map
The conference venue, Low Library Rotunda, is located in the Morningside Campus of Columbia University. You can enter the campus through the main gates at 116th Street - it is the big building with the dome. Maps are available online for Columbia University, Alfred Lerner Hall and the Columbia Business School at Uris Hall.
Public Transportation: Four bus lines (M4, M11, M5, M104) and one subway line (the Broadway IRT #1 local) serve the Columbia/Morningside Heights area. If you find yourself on the Broadway IRT #2 express or #3 express, be certain to change to the #1 local train at 96th Street. The Columbia University stop is 116th street.
By Air: La Guardia is the closest airport to the city and is about a $15 taxi fare to the campus. For those coming into John F. Kennedy or Newark airports, bus service is available to either the East Side Terminal or Port Authority Bus Terminal. Taxi Service is available from these two airports, but it is expensive.
By Train or Bus: Train and bus service arrive at New York's Grand Central Station, Pennsylvania Station, or Port Authority Bus Terminal where a visitor can take either public transportation or a taxi north to the campus.
By Car: Columbia is best reached by taking the 95th/96th Street exit of the Henry Hudson Parkway (West Side Highway). Use the 95th Street off ramp and turn left onto Riverside Drive. Proceed north to 116th Street. A right turn at 116th Street leads you to the campus gate. The main campus runs from West 114th Street to West 120th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.
To reach the Henry Hudson Parkway:
From the North: (1) New York Thruway (Route 87) to Cross Bronx Expressway in the direction of the George Washington Bridge. Bear right as you approach the bridge and take the exit for the Henry Hudson Parkway south. (2) New England Thruway (I-95) becomes the Cross Bronx Expressway. Proceed as above. (3) Saw Mill River Parkway south or Cross County Parkway west to Henry Hudson Parkway south.
From the West: New Jersey Turnpike (I-95) north or I-80 east to George Washington Bridge. Follow signs as you cross bridge to exit for Henry Hudson Parkway south.
