Location: 548 W. 113th St, right next to Symposium, the Greek restaurant. Nearby dorms: […]

Somewhere deep beneath the stacks of Butler library, an old proverb is written: on the third day of housing selection, one third of the rising junior class will know tears. We hope you, dear reader, will not be part of that cursed third, but if you are, there’s always space for you on our couch […]

EC townhouse and high-rise suites will not have traditional stoves or ovens next year. Here’s why, and how it will affect you.

Who doesn’t love a good sink?  Location: 411 West 116th Street, between Amsterdam and Morningside (right by Morningside Park) Nearby Dorms: East Campus Stores […]

Cathedral Gardens (or, more colloquially, CG) is an oft-forgotten Barnard dorm that regardless always goes quickly during housing selection. It’s comparatively far from campus, sure, but it has large rooms, beautiful windows, hardwood floors and many other great amenities that make it a top pick for many rising seniors. Location: 217 Manhattan Ave. (at the […]
