Real Life Location FactsEdit
King's College was founded in 1754 by royal charter of George II, the king of Britain at the time. After the American Revolutionary War ended in 1783, King's College briefly became a state institution and was renamed Columbia College in 1784. In 1787, a charter put Columbia under the auspices of a private board of trustees, then in 1896 it was renamed again to Columbia University. It grew into a prestigious Ivy League research private university. Eventually, the campus moved from Madison Avenue to Manhattan's Morningside Heights neighborhood.
- Although the University is never given a name in the film, the scenes shot at the University were filmed at Columbia University in New York.
- In "The Ghostbusters Storybook", the narrative oddly refers to the University as Weaver Hall University. Weaver Hall is taken from the name of the building that the Paranormal Studies Laboratory occupies at the beginning of the movie. 
- In the novelization, The University is known as Columbia University.
