Housing Reviews 2018: 620 W 116th St

The crème de la crème of the Barnard dorms  (certainly the best of the 600s), 620 has it all: roomy singles, nice views, and…drafty windows? Oh well, nobody’s perfect.

Housing Reviews 2018: Wien

Located directly in front of PrezBo’s multi-million dollar house, Wien naturally comes up short.

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 […]

It’ll definitely take you less time to read this housing review than it will to walk to this Columbia dorm.
