Georgian Residence traces its rich history back to the early days of Columbia University 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.
