Barnard students living in Columbia residence halls through the Barnard/Columbia Housing Exchange will be billed following the Barnard room rates.  Columbia students living in Barnard residence halls will be billed by and for rates set by Columbia University Undergraduate Housing.

Room rates (and meal plan & tuition rates) for the following academic year are typically announced each year by the College after Spring Break.

The College establishes room charges for the academic year.  Tuition, room, board, and all other fees are payable semiannually in advance, one-half by August 1 and one-half by December 1; failure to make full payment for the Fall and/or Spring semester by those dates will result in forfeiture of existing assigned space.  Students continue to be responsible for room fees unless and until the housing assignment is canceled and/or vacated as specified below.  In all events, no student will be allowed to occupy an assigned room unless all College fees are paid in the time and manner established by the College.  Failure to pay outstanding balances as required may be cause for dismissal from College housing or for such other action as may be determined appropriate by the College.  Delinquent accounts are referred to credit bureaus and a collection agency.  Students are responsible for the costs of collection including, without limitation, interest, penalties, collection agency fees of 33.33%, court fees, and attorney fees.  This policy applies to all charges assessed by the College.
