Barnard Housing Reviews 2015: 600 West 116th Street
Don’t you worry, Barnard; we didn’t forget about housing selection for you! Continuing the tradition for the second year in a row, we bring you the reviews for Barnard dorms! Up next we have a dorm that currently has no gas and sometimes runs out of hot water, but otherwise we hear it’s a fine place to live!
Location: 600 West 116th Street (literally at the corner of Broadway and 116)
Nearby dorms: 616, 620, Schapiro, the Barnard Quad, Furnald
Nearby restaurants : Ollie’s (too soon), Vine (still closed), Morton, all the tastiness the Broadway restaurant strip has to offer
Bathrooms: Each suite has its own bathroom.
AC/Heating: No AC.
Kitchen/Lounge: Each suite has a kitchen with a sink, gas stove/oven, and refrigerator. Your suite could have hidden common areas but there’s a TV lounge on the second floor with a piano.
Laundry: In the second floor lounge.
Computers/Printers: Computer lab on the first floor of 616 for all 600s residents to use.
Suites have mostly doubles. But they’re sizable!
Most of the singles in 600 are reserved for the RAs.
Solid pick for rising juniors, usually have some suites carry over to Sophomore Day for mixed groups.
Lobby is really beautiful!
A really great choice if your group is cool with doubles.
It’s a corner building so your chances of getting a real window with real sunlight emitting through it are higher than in most dorms.
Location is so key; closer to Barnard buildings obviously but you’re right on the Broadway crosswalk to get you to College Walk in no time.
“I can’t speak about my living situation after the fire.”
“My double is HUGE. Because of that it isn’t so bad to be a junior in a double. 620 next year or bust, though.”
“I got off the guaranteed housing list and was placed in a double here. I couldn’t have gotten luckier with my placement because I love these girls and this building!”
“The elevators take fucking years”
Pretty typical double
Other side of said double
Floors lamps are a must
Look at that tiling though
You get your own kitchen!
Bwog does not condone underage drinking
Actual seating space in your kitchen
For when you really need to charge your phone in the elevator
