Fighting climate change one idea at a time
The boys' dorms and the girls' dorms at Northfield Mount Hermon offer a wide variety of living spaces.
If you like lots of people around all the time, we have a house that accommodates 150 students. If you like living on a smaller scale, there’s a house for just 14. Day students are assigned to a dorm so they can keep their belongings in a locker and spend the night on weekends.
The dorms have great amenities, too. One has giant bedrooms, another, a garden lounge. Some have terraces or a TV room, a snack bar or a full kitchen. They all have public computers and a printer, and of course students can access the Internet and the NMH network from their rooms.
The dorms can be a retreat or the source of all kinds of things to do: informal competitions, weekend field trips, special dinners. The more you keep your door open, the more friends you’ll make and the more fun you’ll have.
And to keep things feeling as much like home as possible, each dorm has at least one faculty member and his or her family living in it as your “dorm parents.” They’re there whenever students have a question to ask, a success to celebrate, or a problem to solve. No matter which dorm students choose, they feel so comfortable and supported that they don’t call it student housing; they call it home.
