As of November 13, 2015, all students on the Columbia University Undergraduate Program in Paris have been confirmed safe. Columbia's Office of Global Programs and the program staff continue to monitor the situation. Students needing assistance can contact Columbia Public Safety at 212-854-5555.
Columbia University has also issued a statement:
Columbia has a longstanding academic presence in Paris at Reid Hall in the Montparnasse District, which is home to Columbia Global Center Europe. President Bollinger and other members of the University administration have been monitoring events since Friday night and were in prompt communication with our staff in Paris.
Based on rapid outreach there overnight, we believe that all Columbia students and faculty at the Paris Global Center are safe and accounted for.
We continue to monitor the situation through all of our schools and will update this information if appropriate. With the rest of the world, we watched these developments with the greatest concern; our thoughts are with the people of Paris and all those affected by these events.
