About Columbia University’s Core Facilities and Shared Resources

Columbia University's core facilities provide shared access to state-of-the-art scientific instrumentation and services. These facilities are open to all Columbia faculty, research scientists, and students, and will often provide education and training as needed. Many of the cores and shared research facilities use the Core Management software (iLab). This tool allows researchers to reserve time on equipment or submit service requests to the core. iLab also provides centralized billing system for core services. Use the Core Facilities tab above to identify facilities using iLab and to access them.

To view a comprehensive list of facilities, including those that do not use iLab, please refer to the VP&S Research website below.

Non-Columbia (External) Users

Although the core facilities are primarily intended for use by Columbia affiliates, some facilities are available for use by non-Columbia researchers as part of collaborations and/or on a fee-for-use basis. Information about external use of Columbia core facilities, including the creation of an iLab account (if needed), is available on the public VP&S Research website.
