Real Estate

The Real Estate Department is responsible for the acquisition and management of a broad range of property interests. Included among our activities is the negotiation of contracts to purchase property or development rights; the negotiation of leases for off-campus space requirements; the management of over 460,000 square feet of leased space occupied by the University; and oversight of a portfolio of properties leased to commercial tenants. Though based on the Morningside Heights Campus, the department services all of the University's locations, including the Columbia University Medical Center, the Nevis Laboratories Campus, the Lamont-Doherty Observatory, and other satellite locations.
