Enter Barnard’s gates at 117th and Broadway and the experience is unique. Immediately obvious is how picturesque and green their four-acre campus is, and how intimate it feels in the midst of New York City.

There is historic Milbank Hall at the north end, topped by the 2,500 square foot Arthur Ross Greenhouse, and Sulzberger Tower and the residential quadrangle at the south where more than 90 percent of students reside.

There are over 300,000 volumes in the library in Lehman Hall, dance studios in Barnard Hall, state-of-the-art science labs in Altschul Hall, and architecture classrooms with a view in the Diana Center, with its terra-cotta glass façade. At the heart of it all is the welcoming beauty of Barnard’s beloved Lehman Lawn.
