It may not have air conditioning, but Reid is a perfectly nice place to spend your first year at Barnard, especially if you get a nice view of the Quad/Broadway.

In this totally unbiased review written by Bwoggers-by-day and Sulz-residents-by-night Cara Hudson-Erdman and Idris O’Neill, read more about what […]
McBain is the definitively the worst dorm on campus. Don’t live here. If you are a rising sophomore whose lottery number isn’t good enough for Nuss, just go to Schapiro. Location: 113th and Broadway. Nearby dorms: Watt, Nussbaum, Frat Row, Carman Stores and restaurants: Milano’s, Junzi, Community, Nussbaum, Panda Express, Morton Williams, Westside, Duane Reade, International, Chase […]

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.

Located directly in front of PrezBo’s multi-million dollar house, Wien naturally comes up short. But we don’t think it deserves its bad rap—especially for rising sophomores and juniors who can snag renovated singles. 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 […]

Location: 217 Manhattan Ave. (at the […]
