Students can choose to stay in campus dormitories, or in any of the many hotels or campgrounds nearby.
The College is a zero-emissions campus, with solar power, and composting toilets. Most of the dorms have a shared bathroom. Staying on campus is a sure way to catch all of the jam sessions that carry on into the wee hours!
There are several other hotels less than a 10 minute walk from COA’s campus, and a wealth of other local options you might wish to explore yourself! Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce has a comprehensive list of accommodations that you can find here.
Please see our FAQ page for more detailed info on dorms and campus life!
