Bard College at Simon's Rock: the Early College

Kilpatrick Athletic Center


The Kilpatrick Athletic Center offers the resources and support you need to enjoy life-long integrated solutions to health and wellness.

We have made many adjustments to our facility and operations to reopen safely and ensure the health and wellness of our community on- and off-campus during the pandemic. We are following all state guidelines and are working diligently to maintain this safe space for recreation and fitness. All use of the facility requires a membership and advance sign-up. No day passes permitted at this time. 

We have revised our hours of operation to minimize overlap between students and community members.
