Viewssss from suite 12A2!
600 West 116th Street, or the dorm above Shake Shack, is a conveniently located Barnard housing option. But it has a number of inconveniences, too. Read on to weigh the pros and cons.
Location: 600 West 116th Street.
Bathrooms: Each suite has one bathroom. Some are newly renovated/modern.
AC/Heating: Heating but no AC.
Lounge: There’s a lounge on the second floor. Suites have a common dining room space.
Kitchen: Each suite has one kitchen with an oven, fridge, and stove.
Laundry: On the second floor. Requires the Barnard laundry card.
Computers/printers: Down the street, in the lobby of 616.
Gym: None. Go to the Barnard gym, a short walk away.
Intra-transportation: Two elevators that are notoriously slow and constantly break.
Hardwood/carpet: Hardwood throughout. Linoleum in kitchen and tile in bathroom.
WiFi: Yes, Barnard WiFi.
Mostly juniors will get 600, with some sophomores. Seniors generally don’t want to live here because they prefer singles.
600 is super conveniently located, but it’s also old and some suites have been known to have mice problems. It’s also hard to get a single, if that’s what you want.
On the flip side, some suites have killer views, and if you get one of those, you’ve lucked out! Plus, you can host dinner parties in your dining room if your suite mates are down.

Want to be close to Riverside Park and don’t mind walking up hills? Woodbridge has everything you need.
Nearby dorms: St. A’s, Schapiro, the 600s, River (sort of).
Stores and restaurants: Morton William’s, a halal cart, Sweetgreen, Starbucks, Shake Shack, Pret.
Cost: standardized to $9,538 per year
Woodbridge is a great option for rising seniors who want an apartment-style living space. You only have to share the kitchen and bathroom with one other person. There are also some amazing views from the higher floors, and if you like Riverside Park the location can’t be beat. The hill from Riverside to Broadway along 115th is not a small one and can feel interminable, especially in the winter. The suites feel quite cozy.

Bwog knows about that middle school dance concert. Bwog knows your shame.
New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable lectures, events, and performances for the literary/musically/theatrically-inclined on campus.
