Student Life The student body at Bard College Berlin is small yet highly international, and it includes not only full-time Bard College Berlin students, but also visiting students from the international Bard College network, the European ERASMUS exchange network, and other partner institutions, as well as students from areas of crisis.
From the dozen student-led clubs to the full-time Student Life staff, students are engaged in building their community.
Bard College Berlin’s campus
At Bard College Berlin, students live in a quiet, green, and secluded neighborhood perfect for study. In addition to a lecture hall and seminar facilities, our campus boasts a library, cafeteria, student residence halls, and a student center. While our location is conducive to concentration and close community, it also offers the experience of living in a city that is a hub for research and innovation, home to the German parliament and Federal Chancellery, creative entrepreneurs, designers, artists, numerous academic and cultural institutions, three opera houses, a philharmonic orchestra, and countless galleries, cinemas, and theaters.
