Storage Space

Storage Space for Email

Email accounts on the Microsoft Exchange system for administrative staff start at 500 MB. Additional space is available on the Exchange server at a cost.

Storage Space for Personal Web Pages

Each ID also includes space on the CUIT UNIX system for storing personal web files and other non-email files. This space is separate from the email space on the main Columbia system. Non-email space quotas are as follows:

  • Columbia and Barnard undergraduates: 40MB
  • Columbia graduate and professional school students, including Teachers College and UTS: 20MB. Upgraded accounts: 40mb for the current semester
  • Faculty, TAs, and student instructors: 80MB
  • Staff: 20MB


  1. If you have a question or issue related to your storage space, please contact the CUIT Service Desk via email at or by calling 212-854-1919.
  2. TAs and student instructors should have the faculty member or department for whom they are working request a free TA account (80MB) for them if more CUIT UNIX space is needed.
