All first-year unmoderated students are required to live on campus and are assigned to live with at least one roommate. First-year students are assigned housing based on the timely submission of a Housing Profile and Facility Use Agreement form, found on MyAnnandale. Although it is often difficult to fulfill specific requests, every effort is made by the Office of Residence Life and Housing to do so. Students are typically notified of their placement by mid-July via their Bard email, which is assigned in June. Students are housed for Language and Thinking and Citizen Science in their permanent room assignments.
