​Georgian Residence

Georgian Residence traces its rich history back to the early days of Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Originally built as a private apartment building, it was purchased by Presbyterian Hospital in 1962 to house staff nurses. Today, some of the building's finer architectural details remain: solid wood floors, decorative door moldings, and spacious rooms.

Since 1983, Georgian Residence has housed academic offices on its first three floors and residential units on the top four floors. You can select from studios and two- and three-person suites.


  • Room size varies, from 353 square feet for studios to 571 square feet for the full one-bedrooms. Two-bedroom suites can measure about 200 square feet per bedroom. Please inquire about specific room sizes when reviewing your accommodations.

    • Twin XL bed
