Eastside’s residential program provides students with an additional level of structure and academic support.
Dormitories are staffed with dedicated residential faculty members who serve as tutors, counselors, and mentors, providing each student with the support they need to reach their potential. The residential program’s main objective is to encourage students’ academic success and help them become increasingly responsible and self-reliant in preparation for college.
Students think of the residence hall as their “home away from home” and their fellow boarders and residential faculty as part of their extended families. Two students share a room, and in the evenings, the boarding community gathers for study sessions, house meetings, movies, game nights, community service activities, and special celebrations.
Some boarding students choose to return home on weekends, but students are welcome to stay on campus during the weekends, when they participate in tutorials and a variety of fun activities. The residential program also runs year-round to accommodate students who can benefit from living on campus for our summer session as well as our regular academic year.
