Housing

Off-campus housing is plentiful in the Bard area. Students and faculty interested in living off-campus must make their own arrangements. To assist you, Bard offers an online Classifieds service where students and faculty can view available local sublets.

On-campus housing is available during the summer session. Housing is guaranteed for single students; special housing for families is usually available at a higher rate. Applicable housing charges will be added to your student account and must be paid in full prior to the move-in date. All dorms are non-smoking. No pets are permitted in campus housing.
