Inside The Halls

Woodrow, which opened as a dormitory in 1914, is one of the University’s historic buildings located on the outer Horseshoe. It is named for James Woodrow, university president from 1891 to 1897, the uncle of United States President Woodrow Wilson, who spent part of his boyhood in Columbia. James Woodrow is celebrated for admitting the first women to the university in 1894, enriching the curriculum and championing science over superstition.

A coed apartment-style residence hall, Woodrow is home to 102 students. Residents live in two- and three-bedroom apartments that include a bathroom, living room and full kitchen. The student center (the Russell House), and the main library (Thomas Cooper) are located across the street from Woodrow.
