Monica Kuth is the Director of Leasing Services for Columbia Residential. Monica oversees the department's Landlord/Tenant legal matters with outside counsel and manages issues involving the portfolio’s statutory resident population. She and her team provide a wide range of client services - from assistance for at risk or elderly residents and guidance with off-campus housing searches, to trouble shooting of utility disconnects and nuisance complaints. She has worn several hats during her long tenure with the University, but is best known for her work on legal and social service concerns, including management of responses to hoarding and other mental illness issues affecting the Residential portfolio. A long time contributor to Columbia Community Service, she believes strongly in our connection with the greater Morningside Heights community. In her spare time Monica dances with an afro-jazz group and sings in an uptown choir.
