Student housingBard College Berlin’s un-moderated students (BA first and second year, and Academy Year) live on campus in gender inclusive residence halls, usually sharing a room, often with a student from a different country. The residence halls are spacious, light-filled buildings, each no more than 5 minutes’ walk from the cafeteria, Student Center, Factory Arts Building, and all other facilities and buildings on campus. The SPOK fitness center, for which the College has a membership, is also nearby.
Two of the residence halls are renovated traditional Berlin apartment buildings ("Altbau") with a courtyard and garden. Each apartment typically comprises of three double rooms, a hall, its own bathroom facilities and a fitted communal kitchen. Hardwood floors and high ceilings give these rooms a particular charm. Free of charge laundry facilities (washing machines & dryers) are available on the grounds.
Two additional residence halls are neo-Bauhaus constructions surrounded by gardens and lawn areas. Each of these buildings has a fully equipped kitchen, shared bathrooms and showers, and laundry facilities (washing machines & dryers) which can be used free of charge. On the grounds behind each of these buildings, students can practice sports, study or just soak up sunshine.
The Henry Koerner Hall, the newest residence hall on campus, is a modern apartment-style building (“Neubau”). Each apartment has its own kitchen, living room, and bathroom facilities. Construction on this building was finished in 2019 and the building includes many energy saving and environmentally friendly features.
All residence halls rooms are fully equipped to cover basic needs - they include a bed (with or without built-in drawers), a wardrobe, a desk, a chair, a bookshelf, a bed lamp and a desk lamp (per person). Bed linens are also provided. All the residence halls have free wireless internet access. Students are responsible for the cleaning of their own spaces; the College provides cleaning services in the common areas.
