Dorm Life

dorm life; your home away from home 

The central unit in your life at Salisbury is the group of students with whom you live.  Life in the dormitory is one of the most rewarding aspects of the boarding school environment. 

Most of Salisbury’s students live within ten student residences on the Hilltop.

Dorms are grouped by form (third, fourth and fifth/sixth).  Most boys share a room with another student, though some single rooms are available.  New students are assigned dorms while returning students choose their rooms and roommates.  Each dorm has a common area for use by all residents.  A television and microwave are available in each of these rooms.  Many dorms also offer vending and laundry facilities.

Faculty instructors and their families live within our dormitories and provide supervision, guidance and advice as well as fun and friendship.

Each dorm is also assigned at least one prefect.  These sixth formers assist dormitory faculty in leading the supervision of the dorms and day students.  These boys are specially selected for their leadership ability and serve as role models to the students within the dorm and around campus.
