Housing Exchange with Columbia University

A very limited number of continuing Barnard students are able to live in Columbia University residence halls (and vice-versa) each year through the Barnard/Columbia Housing Exchange (usually no more than 30 to 40 per year).

Please note that housing options like The Bayit and International House are not considered part of undergraduate housing and are not part of the Barnard/Columbia Housing Exchange. Students who move into these locations would cease to be eligible for participation in the Room Selection process and would loose their guarantee of housing for future semesters. Additionally, students who choose to live in these locations would be classified by the Barnard Financial Aid office as living off-campus and would eligible for less financial aid. If you have any questions about choosing to live in a location that is not coordinated through the Barnard/Columbia Housing Exchange, please speak to both Residential Life & Housing and the Financial Aid office.
