As stated in the Barnard catalogue, housing options for Barnard students include traditional dormitories, suite arrangements, and apartments in College-owned buildings adjacent to the campus. All resident Barnard students are expected to follow housing policies and procedures developed by the Office of Residential Life and Housing. Incoming disabled and nondisabled first-year students are required to live in multiple rooms in traditional corridor-type dormitories with a mandatory meal plan; roommate selection is based on individual questionnaires distributed to all first-year students during the summer prior to their fall admission. Transfer and visiting students are housed based on availability, and are traditionally placed in multiple rooms.
Disability Services and Residential Life work closely to respond to the individual needs of Barnard students with disabilities. Disabled students who decide to complete a Disability Housing Request should first complete the regular Housing Application and that they intend to submit a disability housing request. Please complete the steps below in the order in which they are listed; appointments with ODS Director Susan Quinby may only be scheduled after the student’s written request and the required disability documentation have been received. The Disability Housing Committee (Counseling Services; Disability Services; First-Year Dean; Residential Life; Primary Care Health Service) meets in summer (for newly admitted students) and spring (for returning students) and reviews all requests for disability-related housing.
