Sexual & Reproductive Health

The choice to be sexually active is unique to the individual. The majority of Columbia students take active steps to protect their sexual and reproductive health by:

  • Limiting the number of sexual partners
  • Using barrier methods to prevent sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Using barrier methods or hormonal contraception to prevent pregnancy

Sexual and reproductive health resources include access to free safer sex supplies (internal and external condoms, dental dams, lubricant, and information). There are a number of locations where free safer sex supplies are available to students on the Morningside campus. Check the map for locations, hours, and directions to safer sex supplies.
