Student Life

Living on Campus

What’s it like to live in a house with your closest friends?

"My favorite part about being a boarder is that I am always surrounded by my friends.  Whether its relaxing with my dorm before study hall, or chilling with my friends at dinner, they are always there to make me laugh!  Every weekend there are also tons of fun weekend activities that are great to keep me and the other boarders entertained!  One more thing I love about being a boarder is the study hall at night because it helps me to focus and collaborate with classmates."  Emma '17
Living on campus is like living with a family that supports, accepts, and helps every member realize his or her full potential.

KUA utilizes a mixed-housing model. Students of all ages are represented in every dorm. This fosters the development of big-sister, big-brother types of relationships and gives every student the chance to thrive in the nurturing environment of multi-aged supporters.

Whether students live in a dorm of five or a dorm of 45, they all have dedicated faculty members living with them to look to for answers, advice, and connections. Dorm families eat together, study together, tackle problems together, and find space away from each other when necessary, just like a family.

Kimball Union students are here on weekends.  They stay on campus with their friends and dive into activities, or just hang out and enjoy each other's company.
