Campus Services and Resources

Bard Student Services, overseen by the Dean of Student Affairs Office (DOSA), is concerned with the quality of College life. Through these services Bard seeks to enhance the value of the undergraduate experience by encouraging students to participate actively in their community and support the development and pursuits of the student body.

A System of Support

Bard provides a wide range of activities and opportunities for students to engage in challenging and rewarding ways with peers, the community, and the world at large. It also provides a support system of advisers, tutors, counselors, and related programs to help students successfully negotiate their undergraduate experience.

Computing at Bard

Bard computing resources and facilities are available to all faculty, staff, and students on campus. Although many students provide their own computer, it is not required. Computers are available in computing labs and classrooms throughout campus. Wireless networking is available in the campus center, libraries, and many residence halls.

The Learning Commons

Help in writing a paper—or with any academic subject—is found at the Learning Commons. Commons staff provides tutoring and academic skills workshops to all Bard students, with assistance in more than 40 subjects. The commons offers a credit-bearing course in writing, as well as one-on-one tutorials.
