Barnard Housing…It’s Imminent!
Written by Bwog Staff
There’s nothing to put a damper on SPRING BREAK 2010! like housing trauma. Barnard students can start registering for housing on March 22nd, as in the Monday after spring break. Registration lasts for a week, until the following Monday the 29th. Lottery numbers will be posted the next Monday, April 5th.
New for 2010: registration will take place in Lewis Hall (not James) on the 1st floor of Brooks. There will be new, as yet undetermined, room rates for studio singles at 601 W 110th. Mixed-class year groups will use the best lottery number of the group, but on Selection Day the group will pick from the lowest class year. In 2010, the class year of Columbia students pulled into Barnard housing affects whether a group will be considered a Same-Class Year Group or a Mixed-Class Year Group. The maximum group side for a block of students is 4. There will be some form of required meal plan, but the site says that the official plan will be announced according to class year.
Also new, and interactive (!): a Room Review section that sort of works like CULPA. Students can provide room write-ups, as well as pictures and videos of their digs. Plus, get this: Res Life will randomly select four Room Reviews and award their writers a $25 Amazon Gift Card.
