Broadway Residence Hall is a postmodern dormitory at Columbia University in New York City. The building is commonly referred to by students as "Broadway". The building is nominally located at the corner of Broadway and 113th Street, though it shares its main entrance, which opens onto 114th Street, with Hogan Hall. Designed by Robert A. M. Stern, it opened in 2000. Originally supposed to blend with the redbrick McKim, Mead & White buildings of the Columbia campus, Broadway Hall's design was changed to placate neighbors who wished to see it blend with local apartment buildings. In addition to housing students, its lower levels are home to a beauty supply store and a branch of the New York Public Library system.
