Showers and Change Rooms

Columbia has a number of locations on campus where active commuters such as cyclists, walkers, and runners can access a shower before heading into work or class.


Dodge Fitness Center at Morningside campus offers a $40 per semester Active Commuter Shower Pass membership. This membership is perfect for cyclists who may need access to a shower before beginning the workday.

The pass gives members access to locker room amenities, a fresh towel each visit, and lock service 7:00 a.m. through 10:00 a.m. Monday through Friday. Overnight lockers are available for an additional fee. Dodge Fitness Center semesters generally run:

  • Fall: mid-August through December
  • Spring: January through mid-May
  • Summer: end of May through early August

The discounted active commuter pass is not available for purchase online, but is available upon request by visiting the Dodge Fitness Center Membership Office.
