Welcome to Columbia Lodge U.D. (#1754)

About Us

About Freemasonry

Our fraternity has a rich history, which dates back more than three centuries. It is one of the world's oldest secular fraternities, a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. Founded on the three great principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth, it aims to bring together men of goodwill, regardless of background and differences.

A Masonic Lodge for the Columbia Community within the Grand Lodge of New York

Membership & Affiliation

Now accepting petitions for membership and affiliation from candidates and brothers worldwide.  Lodge membership is intended principally for members of the Columbia community as described below in Inquiries.

Meetings will take place at the Grand Lodge of New York building in New York City on Saturday mornings at 11am during the academic calendar year.

Principles of the Craft

Brotherly love. We value respect, freedom, kindness, tolerance, and our differences - religious, ethnic, cultural, social, generational, and educational - and strive for harmony in our individual lives, in our lodges, and in the global community.

Relief. We take responsibility for the well-being of our brothers, our families, and the community as a whole. We provide relief through philanthropy, community involvement, and delivery of excellent care.

Truth. We stay true to our personal code of conduct and ethics - honor, integrity, personal responsibility, and the continuous pursuit of knowledge.


The Masonic Lodge dedicated to the Columbia Community

This fraternal organization is not affiliated with the University but our membership draws worldwide principally upon alumni, students, faculty, and staff of Columbia's various divisions (and their direct male relatives).  If you wish to know more, affiliate, join, email us.
