Attending Bard Events
The College regularly hosts public lectures, film screenings, and performances at several campus venues. The Fisher Center presents ongoing music, theater, and dance; you may also cheer the Raptors at our athletic facilities. The Hudson Valley's outdoor recreation, cultural activities, and historic sites complement any visit to campus.
Bard College campus grounds in Annandale are open to the community. Visitors who are vaccinated and boosted are welcome in campus facilities (except residence halls and the gym, which remain off limits to visitors) with advance approval from the Response Team, which can be obtained through this simple form.
The CDC has recently classified Dutchess County as an area of high transmission for COVID-19. In areas of high transmission, the CDC recommends vaccination, testing if you experience symptoms, and masking indoors. As a result of this designation, members of our community should consider wearing a mask when indoors and in a public setting and in other common or shared spaces where individuals may interact.
