With the opening of the Columbia Business School this spring, we wanted to ensure that the community is aware of the numerous public spaces on the Manhattanville campus. Enjoy a cup of coffee at one of the cafés, then take a stroll through an art gallery, and if you're up for it, go rock climbing. But who says you have to do it all in one day? Check out these places while you're in the neighborhood. 

Educational Opportunities

Zuckerman Institute's Education Lab, located in the Jerome L. Greene Science Center building, gives the public a chance to experience science at a full range from exploring the brain to internships for local high school students.  

The Wallach Art Gallery, located in the Lenfest Center of the Arts building, is an art gallery in the heart of Harlem that features collaborations with renowned art institutions and local artists. 

The Wellness Center provides education and resources to people in the community looking to make healthy lifestyle adjustments.

Relaxation Time

The Square is an open space between the Business School buildings. In warmer months, it will be a great place for a picnic.
