Welcome to the Bayit!


We are the Beit Ephraim Food Co-op ("The Bayit") -- the nation’s oldest communal housing run by Jewish students. Located two blocks south of the Columbia University campus, life at the Bayit is based on principles of Jewish leadership, volunteerism, and commitment to communal responsibility. 

Bayit residents are undergraduate and graduate students who represent a range of Jewish backgrounds, yet come together each semester to share a student housing environment with a uniquely warm atmosphere; unlike any other in NYC.

We are currently accepting application for summer 2018 (open to any self-identifying Jewish people) and fall 2018 (open to all undergraduate and graduate students attending a Columbia affiliated institution) on a rolling admission basis → Apply here: http://bit.ly/2F2sOC2
