Accepted Students

A Letter from the President — 

"Please accept my congratulations on your acceptance to Bard College," writes Bard president Leon Botstein. "I want to welcome you into a college community that cherishes the life of the mind but also seeks to link the spirit of inquiry to public service and engagement with life in society."

Residence Life at Bard

The Bard campus offers more than 40 student residences that embrace a wide range of architectural characteristics, social styles, and sizes. All have Internet access, social rooms, kitchens, and laundries, and many boast beautiful views of the Catskill Mountains to the west. Most residence halls are coed, and roughly one-third of the rooms are singles. All first-year and sophomore Bard students are guaranteed housing; transfer students are not, although they may request on-campus housing.
