Bard Athletic Center

Bard Athletic Center is Columbia University Irving Medical Center's go-to resource for fitness activities and programs. Conveniently located on levels 2B and 3B of Bard Hall, we help thousands of CUIMC students, faculty, and staff work out and improve their health.

Develop your personalized workout program using our treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bicycles, rowing machines, stair climbers, and dumbbell sets and benches. We also offer a number of fitness classes throughout the year, and our facility and pool are accessible.

All Membership Packages will be pro-rated as of April 1, 2018.
