Rent Space on the Simon’s Rock Campus

The campus offers attractive facilities—including the state-of-the art athletic facilities of the Kilpatrick Athletic Center—for meetings, trainings, weddings, and parties.

Bard College at Simon’s Rock is located on a beautifully rural 200-plus-acre campus in the green and culturally rich Berkshire hills of Western Massachusetts. Only minutes from the historic town of Great Barrington, Simon’s Rock is an excellent location both for on-campus activities as well as a base from which to visit the area’s celebrated cultural and historic venues. Simon’s Rock is easily accessed by two major airports, highway, and bus.


Requests should be made well in advance of the date being requested. During the academic year (August to May) we cannot accommodate requests for dorm space. For inquiries about campus facility rentals including dorm space during the summer months (June-July), complete the Facility Rental Request Form. 

The campus is not available for rentals during Commencement (mid-May), Family Weekend (late October), or December 25 - January 1.

Kilpatrick Athletic Center


The Kilpatrick Athletic Center is also available for rental for parties and events. Our expansive facilities offer a number of venues that are perfect for team building, focus, and fun—from birthday parties, corporate events, or group retreats. Use the pool, gymnasium, or even test your strength on the climbing wall. The lobby Snack Bar is the perfect location to gather and eat good food.
