Directions to Columbia University 600 Fairchild Departmental Office

The Fairchild Building located on the northeast corner of campus (see campus map linked below).

Columbia University's main gate is located at 116th Street and Broadway. Enter the campus at 116th and Broadway and proceed to the steps on your left, walk up the steps leading to the Alma Mater, and head towards your right as you do so. This will put you on the east side of the large building at the top of the stairs (to the right of the building as you face it).  Head north (straight ahead) and the Sherman Fairchild building is almost at the end of this campus walk, and is a modern red brick building (pictured below). You can take the elevator to the 6th floor. The 600 department office is on the right.
