Room Draw Changes for 2015-2016

There have been a few updates and clarifications to Room Draw this year. If this does not answer all of your questions, please come to an information session or contact reslife@bard.edu.
  • The location of room draw has changed. Room draw will take place in Olin Hall (April 20 and 22) and Brook House for suite selection (April 21) instead of the Stevenson Gymnasium.
  • The Evelina Martin Brown and Sarah McCausland Halls will open their doors for the 2015/2016 academic year, located in Resnick Commons (aka the Villages). Any rising Junior or Senior may select a single in either of these residences. All doubles and triples will be reserved for incoming First Year students. The college will be saying farewell to Hudson and Catskill!
  • In the event that the First Year class is as large as this academic year, 2014-2015,  all double occupancy rooms reserved in Oberholzer and four double rooms in Steinway will be reserved for this population.
  • Neighborhood Applications: All students requesting special interest communities will be required to complete a Neighborhood Application. This includes the current space designated for Wellness for Sands House. With a high demand for suite space, all existing neighborhoods must also reapply and upon review either accepted or denied. There is a maximum of 10 bed spaces assigned to any given neighborhood, except Wellness which is housed in Sands, pending neighborhood application approval.
  • In addition to Resnick Commons A, C & G being occupied during January Intersession, all students residing in Sands Wellness Neighborhood will have Citizen Science faculty assigned to their space.
  • Timeline: As always, there are new dates for Room Draw this year. An informational brochure will be placed in student campus mailboxes before mid March. Please be sure to review this brochure carefully, as important dates and deadlines are outlined.

Planning to Live On Campus 2015-2016

About 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 6, 2015. Please revisit our website at this time and review the information thoroughly.


To Be Assigned (TBA)

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.
