Campus Sustainability

Setting the Standard

Barnard makes sustainable practice a daily reality. From a pop-up store where students swap clothing to groundbreaking environmental research, the entire Barnard community is fully engaged in developing a sustainable model for campuses around the country.

In recognition of these achievements, Barnard College has earned a STARS Silver rating from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).


In the Big Leagues

Barnard’s scholar-athletes compete as Columbia Lions in the prestigious NCAA Division I Athletics, with access to top coaches and facilities.

Student Organizations

Join the Club

Barnard’s 80-plus student clubs — with more across the street at Columbia — shape close friendships through shared passions. They range from a cappella groups and pre-law societies to literary magazines and climate action organizations.

I arrived on campus and instantly met so many upperclass students who were willing to reach out. I do a lot of performing arts, and the moment I mentioned that, any student who did performing arts was like, ‘These are the clubs, this is how you get involved!’
