Lerner Hall

Lerner Hall, is dedicated to student life at Columbia University. A 225,000-square-foot facility located on the southwest corner of campus, Lerner Hall was designed by Bernard Tschumi, the former Dean of Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. The building features a glass facade and ramps to offer those within Lerner scenic views of campus and to allow those on campus to clearly view the activities within the building.

Opened in 1999, Lerner Hall contains an auditorium that seats up to 1,100, a fully operational cinema, a party space, plus a diverse offering of meeting, rehearsal, and performance spaces, computer labs and kiosks, and 7,000 student mailboxes.

The building also features the University Bookstore, two dining facilities, a banking center and ATM, Package Center, and the Ticket and Information Center. Lerner Hall is home to many critical University resources such as Undergraduate Student Life, the James H. and Christine Turk Berik Center for Student Advising, University Chaplain, University Event Management, and Health Services.

Lerner Hall is much more than a building for performances and events— it is the center of student and campus activity at Columbia.
