Living On Campus at Bard

Room Draw

The annual Room Draw process is an equitable means by which students choose their room based on class level. Housing is guaranteed for those students who have not yet moderated. However, moderated students participating in Room Draw are not guaranteed a housing assignment, as space is limited. Many of the frequently asked questions about Room Draw, information and applications for special interest housing, and important dates and deadlines will be included on this website beginning March, 2017. Please revisit our website at this time and review the information thoroughly.

Returning from Study Abroad or Leave of Absence

If you are a student returning from a leave of absence, study abroad, etc. you may request on-campus housing by completing a TBA Form(To Be Assigned). Housing is limited and not guaranteed through this process unless you are an unmoderated student. Applicants will be informed of their assignment dependent on the semester they plan to return,e.g. summer months for the Fall semester, January for Spring semester.
