Campus Tours

Visiting campus is the best way to discover more about Bard.

Campus tours are available most weekdays during the year. See the schedule for specific tour times. Your tour begins in the Office of Admission at Hopson Cottage with a short information session and ends with a Q&A back at Hopson Cottage. 

Campus Tour Schedule

Student-led campus tours last approximately 90 minutes and depart from the Admission Office (Hopson Cottage). Stay after the tour for a Q&A session with our counselors. Due to our small class size, we do not allow visitors in classes. We open classes to accepted students in the spring. Tour times are subject to change during scheduled College breaks and holidays. Visit Bard's academic calendar for more information on College breaks and holidays, or call us at 845-758-7472 for details.
