Columbia University was the location that Erin Gilbert was a Professor at the beginning of the 2016 movie.


Erin Gilbert taught at Columbia University and was looking forward to an established career in the Physics Department. Those plans started to go downhill when Ed Mulgrave Jr. visited Erin saying he read her book and wanted her to check on an apparition at the Aldridge Mansion Museum. After the events at the museum, where Erin encountered Gertrude Aldridge, Dean Harold Filmore found the video Jillian Holtzmann and Abby Yates uploaded of an ecstatic Erin declaring ghosts are real. He fired Erin, indicating that Columbia did not want to be associated with a professor who didn't hold up to their standards.
