Students with scheduled interviews should arrive 15 minutes early. Enter campus through the gates at Claremont and 119th; this entrance leads right to the Milbank courtyard. Or you may enter campus from our main gates and head right. Milbank is the northernmost building on campus.
If you are looking for where the tour starts, please head toward the Admissions Visitor Center in Sulzberger Annex. It's to the left of Barnard Hall when you enter campus at 117th and Broadway.
Weekday campus tours depart at 10:30 AM and 2:30 PM from the Visitor Center and end in Milbank Hall. Tours are followed by an information session at 11:30 AM and 3:30 PM and are designed to complement the tour. Tours are also offered on select weekends in the fall and spring. Please check the admissions homepage announcements for details.

Hewitt is the main dining hall on Barnard's campus. The meal plan includes everything from gourmet to comfort food. Vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options are available. And, Kosher dining at Hewitt serves both the Barnard and Columbia communities.
Visit the Barnard store, grab a brick oven pizza or a latte, stroll through the art gallery, or simply observe student life. Note the ample space for events, the black box theater, a green roof for lounging, and open gallery spaces. The Diana also houses Student Life and the departments of Architecture and Art History, along with studios, study spaces, and the Oval event space.
The best way to find out is to plan a visit to campus. Take a campus tour, talk to current students and faculty members, sit in on a class, meet with a coach. See how students interact and move through the Barnard campus and the Columbia campus across the street. Explore the neighborhood and New York City. Most important, listen to your gut. See what it says when you step through the gates.

When I Fell for Barnard
“I fell in love with Barnard during Admitted Students Weekend. I experienced the campus firsthand and met Barnard women who were articulate, confident, and intellectually curious. I wanted to be just like them.”
