Barnard students have their own personal librarians. As a first-year student, you’ll be matched to a librarian who serves as your go-to person for all things library-related.

With high ceilings and lots of natural light, Barnard’s art studios provide space to create.

The Quad includes four residence halls, home to all first-year Barnard students (and many upper-class students).

The green grasses and flowering magnolia trees of Lehman Lawn make it a favorite for studying or relaxing. It’s also the site of events such as concerts, dance performances, and receptions.

A light-filled space, the Diana Center Café offers up pizza, hot meals, salads, sushi, sandwiches, and more.

“I always dreamt of living in the big city, but, coming from a small town, it just seemed like too much to take in. Then I found Barnard and realized that I could get the best of both worlds: big city, but a small school—and the resources of Columbia.”

“To be able to read well, write well, argue an opinion, and have interpersonal skills will be necessary for any field of work I decide to enter, and Barnard really fosters that in their educational philosophy.”
