Bard's Network

Bard computing resources and facilities are available to all faculty, staff, and students on the Annandale campus. A large number of Windows and Macintosh computers are available in our computing labs and classrooms throughout the campus. These machines and related technology services are managed by the Bard Information Technology Services (BITS).

Bard's wired network provides 10/100MB connections with a Gigabit fiber backbone interconnecting our buildings. Full access to the internet and Internet2 are provided.

Although many students provide their own computer, it is not required. Students with their own computers can connect to the network via our wired or wireless network. Students are required to provide their own Ethernet cable to connect our wired network ports.

Further information including hours, software, and equipment is available via the link below. see labs
