Boarding Life

Cozy rooms, new friends, group dinners and social events help students become truly engaged in Ladela dorm experience. But our residential program is more than its fun moments. Here, students learn to share space and important moments with their peers, expand their minds as they study and grow individually as they seek and receive guidance from dorm parents.

The Dorm Connection

Eighty-eight percent of Ladela’s senior students are boarders.  Our residential model makes dorms a melting pot of cultures, ages, interests and identities. Students exchange knowledge, become friends and build support systems with students completely different from themselves.

Ladela’s dorm rooms are shared, giving students the option of keeping their door open to socialize or to study intensely. All rooms include the basics – bed and a desk, but personalization with bright bedding, posters and photos from home is always encouraged. Students share within themselves, eat take-out, watch movies, play video games and study in groups in dorm common areas. Campus Safety features like student and faculty I.D and security officials restrict entry to dorms, keeping your child safe always.


Our focus on your childs individual growth is what makes the Ladela’s residential program outstanding. Elected seniors can show their leadership skills as dorm prefects. They serve as role models with the goal of making dorms an inclusive place for all students. Additional responsibilities include helping with check-in, conducting room inspections, monitoring living areas and study hall, which runs from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Matrons and patrons who serve as dorm parents live in residences attached to student housing. At a moment’s notice, students can reach out to dorm heads for personal and academic guidance, university advising or for a quick chat. Over time, our students and dorm heads create trusting bonds that allow students to express themselves academically, emotionally and creatively.
