- About the first-floor Stephen Donaldson Lounge:
- On September 27, more than 100 students, faculty, staff and alumni gathered in Schapiro Hall to celebrate the opening of a new lounge for LGBTQ+ students and to commemorate the anniversary of the dedication of the original Stephen Donaldson Lounge in Furnald Hall. Both the original and the new space are named in honor of “Stephen Donaldson,” the alias of Robert Martin ’69, who founded Columbia’s then-named Student Homophile League in 1966. In 1971, students began unofficially meeting in the Furnald basement and, in 1972, the group lobbied for and was granted a permanent meeting space, making it the first LGBTQ+ student lounge on a college campus. In 1996, the Furnald space was renamed the Stephen Donaldson Lounge.

What former residents say:
“Schapiro is equipped with excellent amenities – carpet flooring, a common lounge, a kitchen, adequate bathrooms, music rooms, and of course the sky lounge! Schapiro had a lovely off-campus feel for me, which was a good break from the intensities of on-campus first-year living.”
