Student Life

Living Here

Your neighbor is the person next door—they only happen to be from halfway around the world.

Our students come from all corners of the globe, and about three-quarters live at the School. There are three dormitories where students live-Main, New, and Witherspoon- and there is a senior Proctor that oversees each hall. 

Proctors play an important role in dorm life, conducting nightly check-ins, reminding students of rules, and being trusted advisors. Each hall also has a resident faculty member who oversees dorm life, serves as a mentor, counselor, and hall parent. Together with other adults on campus, they make the dorm a home-away-from-home for boarding students.

  • Our Dorms

    Miss Hall's students come from all corners of the globe, and about three-quarters live in one of our four dorms on campus. Most reside in the Main Building, with freshwomen living on the same hall; New Residence Hall (pictured here) opened in 2016; Groves Hall is a smaller dorm, housing primarily juniors; seniors live in Witherspoon, although a number also live in the Main Building and Groves, where they are Proctors for girls on their hall.

  • Your Room and Roommate

    When you enroll as a boarding student you are assigned a room and a roommate. Each room includes a bed, dresser, desk and chair, and either a closet or wardrobe. We will send a packing list and information about what you can bring with you to campus.

  • Resident Faculty

    The four dorms on the Miss Hall's campus have resident faculty members who live in the halls. These hall parents, along with the Proctor, are your "go to" people. They oversee all aspects of dorm life, serving as mentors, providing guidance and support. Together, with other adults on campus, they make the dorms a home-away-from-home for boarding students.

  • Proctors

    Seniors chosen as Proctors play an important role in dormitory life. They help both new and returning students adjust to life at School. They are also responsible for helping resident faculty managing day-to-day life in the dormitory. They assist in proctoring study hall each evening and complete "check-in" for the dorm on weekday nights. Proctors are often the most knowledgeable and informed people living in a hall.
