Living at Bard

Living at Bard

The Bard campus has more than 40 residential buildings for student housing. All have Internet access, common rooms, and kitchen and laundry facilities, and many have beautiful views of the Catskill Mountains. Residence halls are coed, and most graduate housing rooms are single occupancy.

A detailed housing information pack will be supplied to incoming students. Please contact levygrad@bard.edu with any questions.

On-campus Housing

Students requesting to reside on campus should complete the Graduate Housing Profile and submit it directly to the Office of Residence Life. Students will be placed based upon preference, information from the Graduate Housing Profile, and availability of space. There is no special housing deposit required. Student Accounts will include the housing fee on the student’s tuition bill. Please keep in mind that the commitment is made to live on campus for the full academic year.  

Off-campus Housing

Many Bard graduate students choose to live off campus. Most graduate students select off-campus housing in the Villages of Red Hook and Tivoli. Both villages are within three miles of the College and are served by hourly shuttle bus service to and from campus.
