Columbia University

Columbia University is the university where Ted taught his Architecture class.


When Ted started working as a college professor, he went to the economics classroom instead of his Architecture class, where the mother was. After Ted realized he was in the wrong classroom, he raced across the University to get to the right classroom.

In Matchmaker, Marshall brings the cockamouse to the Columbia Biology Department to be tested by his friend Sudeep.
