“My roommate is my family. … It makes it feel like home.” From Saturday night pizza feeds to the diversity within dorms, hear from students on what makes their house special.
St. Paul’s School is one of a very few schools in the United States where all faculty and students live together on campus. The “fully residential” nature of our community is a key element of our program and part of what makes St. Paul’s so special.
In addition, St. Paul’s uses a “house system” in which students of all ages and backgrounds share the same living spaces, providing you and your dorm mates with unique opportunities to connect, support, and learn from each other. SPS alumni often say the strongest friendships they have forged are the ones made in their houses. Right next door, in apartments attached to each house, are faculty families — sources of support and connection. Your adviser will be connected to your house, providing you both with opportunities to get to know one another.
Your house truly is a home away from home, and your SPS community quickly becomes like an extended family.
