Columbia University is committed to supporting all of our students in receiving the resources and care they need related to their reproductive health. Columbia provides a robust set of sexual and reproductive health services to all students, with care coordinated and delivered through a network that includes Columbia Health, plus direct access to the physicians at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Our vast network enables us to provide students with the highest quality health care, integrated with specialty services that serve the specific clinical needs of individual students. Students on the Columbia University Student Health insurance plan do not have any out-of-pocket costs for abortion services, whether surgical or medical.
In addition, in light of the Supreme Court’s decision to eliminate the constitutional right to legal abortion, the University is deeply engaged in broader issues that go beyond providing access to care for only our students. Columbia University, through expert-driven advocacy, endorses access to comprehensive reproductive health for all women, no matter where they reside in the US.
