VP&S Bldg.: Amphitheater 5/7 Construction

We have begun renovation efforts on Amphitheater 5/7 in the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons Building. 

Highlights of what to expect:

Demolition activity will take place beginning Monday, April 18. During this phase,  demolition activity will take place from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. Mondays through Fridays, and between 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays, if needed. 

Once demolition concludes, normal construction activity will take place between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., Mondays through Fridays. If after-hours and weekend work are required; we will notify you before after-hours or weekend work commences.

While the renovations are being completed, building occupants located on floors 4 through 7 may notice intermittent periods of increased noise, vibration, and dust.


Activities listed are subject to change based on approvals, University events, other requirements, and unforeseen circumstances. To keep you informed of ongoing construction activities taking place in the building, we will provide regular progress updates. For questions or concerns related to this project, please contact us at 212-305-HELP (4357), option 3, or cumc.facilities@columbia.edu.


We apologize for any inconvenience this work may cause and appreciate your patience during this period of transformation.
