As a boarder, Governor's becomes a home away from home. Students develop independence while living away from their parents, but find a nurturing environment here. Boarding life helps students learn to live on their own. Throughout their experiences, students make new best friends, juggle academic and social lives, manage their time and lead a healthy and happy life by eating well, exercising and getting enough sleep.
Housing options include classic red brick dormitories, modern facilities with elevators, and charming houses with names like "Cottage" and "Farmhouse." To foster community, Governor's allows day students to stay with boarding students on Friday and Saturday nights. Day students often reciprocate by inviting boarders to their homes for a weekend visit or a home-cooked meal.
