CG is generally agreed to be Barnard’s nicest hall. It is all suites, made up of singles and doubles. You get the standard bed, desk, chair, dresser and your room has a closet. There are wood floors and wonderful natural light. It is also worth noting that CG is an apartment building, not a dorm, that Barnard uses space in, so there will be tenants living in the same building, aside from Columbia students. On the student floors, the other tenants are Barnard faculty members. Each suite has a large common area that comes furnished with a couch and armchairs. Correction: CG does sign in like every other dorm on campus.
Bathrooms are shared within a suite that you and your suitemates clean. Some have two bathrooms, one of which has two sinks and showers.
There is one per suite with a sink, gas stove and oven, refrigerator, and the holy grail of New York City kitchens, a dishwasher.
Single: $9,480 for the academic year/ $4,740 for one semester

- The internet connection is via modem if you’re in a single, and by a Linksys router if you’re in a double.
- Thin walls
- A suites on all floors have two bathrooms (attached to the double room)
- Closets are significantly larger in some rooms (2A5, 2A5, 2F1, 2F3, 2G4, and on floors 3 through 5: most notably B3, A1 and A2 but also D6 and D4)
- Rooms in A, F, and G suites tend to be larger
- Consider an Unlimited Metrocard in the winter (you can take the M4 bus to and from campus in the winter)
