Bard College Student Handbook

Lock Outs

Students should lock their rooms and carry their room keys with them at all times. In the event a student is locked out of their room, they should contact security. A lockout call is not considered a priority, but a security guard will respond as quickly as staffing permits. During the Language and Thinking program, first-year students will not be charged, unless a student has excessive lockouts. After the completion of the Language and Thinking program, first-year students will be charged a $10.00 fee per lockout. All returning students are expected to understand the lockout policy and will be charged a $10.00 fee for each lockout.
