Finding Your On-Campus Housing
With more than 40 different residence halls, we have developed a series of processes to create the best possible residential experiences on campus.
Check out our residences!
Our halls are grouped in five neighborhoods across campus. The neighborhoods help to group geographically close and programmatically similar residences, click one below to start learning about the neighborhood and the residences it contains.
Life in the Residences
The Residential Experience at Bard is lead by our Peer Counselors(PCs) who live alongside students and serve as leaders as well as resources for their residents. From there we have many different opportunities for students to engage in their residence halls, meet new people, and make life-long connections.
