The Teachers College of Columbia University is a 1,063,100 square foot graduate school of education established in 1887. It is located in New York City and houses over 5,000 students. The campus consists of 8 interconnected buildings, 5 residence halls and apartments, as well as a library, classrooms, gymnasium, cafeterias, and other Columbia University facilities. The design of the buildings reflects the styles of the neighboring buildings. The predominant use of brick, terra cotta and articulated window frames fit well within the Morningside Heights neighborhood Architectural elements such as decorative metalwork, natural stone and copper enliven the base of the building in a similar fashion as neighboring buildings. Deep set windows, stone sills, and a projecting cornice add a level of detail comparable to neighboring buildings.
