Morris A. Schapiro Hall, popularly known as Schapiro, is an undergraduate residence hall that mostly houses juniors in singles and sophomores in doubles. It has yet to earn the nickname "The Schap." It's on 115th St between Broadway and Riverside Drive. Schapiro was built in 1988 for $18m, making it the second newest residence hall after Broadway. When it was completed, Schapiro enabled Columbia to guarantee housing to all undergraduates for all 4 years for the first time in its history.

Schapiro singles usually go to rising seniors, and rising juniors with a lottery number better than 1600.
