Barnard College:

Barnard College is an independent liberal arts college established in 1889 and has been affiliated with Columbia University since 1900. Columbia University, an Ivy League institution, was founded by Royal Charter as King’s College in 1754 and is the oldest university in New York. Barnard was named after Frederick Augustus Porter Barnard, the President of Columbia University, in 1889.

Barnard College sits in Morningside Heights, a neighborhood just north of the Upper West Side, minutes from the bustle of Midtown, and a short walk from the Hudson River, Riverside Park, and the urban oasis of Central Park. On campus, students can enjoy a picnic on the lawns, exercise in the gym at Columbia University, and relax with friends while taking in the breathtaking views of the New York skyline. The surrounding neighborhood features a diverse selection of shops, restaurants, and cafes, as well as notable sites such as Tom's Restaurant, the diner used in the TV show "Seinfeld," and the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, one of the largest cathedrals in the world.

Student accommodations during our study abroad programs in the US are dorm style - with shared facilities
