Guest Writer Sophia Gates delves into the lives of Barnard students staying on campus during the pandemic to share some of their experiences.
We’re kicking off our housing coverage with a look at one of Barnard’s oldest residence halls, Hewitt! Situated in the quad alongside Brooks, Sulzberger, and Reid, this hall hosts mostly sophomores and juniors with some seniors. If you’re looking for a guaranteed single close to campus, this is a great choice for you.
Now that the final stage is over and most have finally caught their breath, Bwog brings you a recap of just what the hell happened in this year’s 1/2/3 housing lottery.
Five-person groups in Barnard’s housing lottery picked today; we bring you the triumphs and tribulations that resulted. While Columbia sophomores scrounged for suites in the John Jay Lounge, groups of Barnard students picked from the comfort of their own laptops in the 5-person lottery. As we mentioned in our post on the senior lottery and 4-person lottery, […]
While we were thoroughly covering every shout and tear of Columbia in-person housing selection, Barnard students were learning to use a new, entirely online selection system run through the StarRez portal. This system caused an uproar among rising seniors and faced a barrage of questions when it was announced in February, but how did it […]

This year, Barnard Housing takes place on three days: rising senior selection is on Friday, March 24, rising junior selection is on Tuesday, March 28, […]
More housing reviews for the Barnard babes! This time it’s Hewitt (the dorm, not the dining hall). Check out this thorough review and get yourself ready for the utter ruthlessness that is room selection. Location: Barnard Quad (3009 Broadway) Nearby dorms: Reid, Brooks, Sulz, Sulz Tower (in the same building); 600, 616, 620, Claremont, etc. (right […]
As we settle into the new year, some of us have upgraded our housing from last year in different ways—including dropping our roommates. However, some people, like myself, have struggled with remembering a key fact: just because you don’t have a roommate doesn’t mean that no one is watching. My new single is so shafted […]
Housing reviews continue today with Sulzberger Tower, which should be of special interest to all Barnard Bears. You might not have The Cage, but surely housing still strikes terror into your very soul. Location: 3009 Broadway (in between 116 and 117 St.) Nearby Dorms: Reid, Brooks, Hewitt (Sulz Tower is part of the quad) Stores […]
