Intro Paragraph

Columbia University’s unique location in New York City allows faculty to expand their classroom to incorporate events, exhibitions, and performances as part of their curriculum.


ArtsLink helps University faculty incorporate attendance at arts and cultural events into their curriculum. Our staff help make it easy for faculty to assign these events without having to buy and re-sell the tickets to their students. We buy the tickets, we can often subsidize their cost, and we sell them directly to the students through the Ticket and Information Center.
