Dorm life is an important part of the Suffield community. Thirteen dormitories are situated on campus. The smallest dorms are located in historic houses on Main Street, each containing between five and twelve students. The school’s largest dorms, Fuller and Spencer Halls, house 46 students. All dorms contain wifi, washers and dryers, a television, microwave, and a laser printer.
At least one faculty member, and sometimes as many as three, live in each dorm. The small size of the dorms and the close supervision of a resident faculty member make each residency a family unto itself. It is not uncommon on a weekend to see several students watching television in a faculty apartment, and students frequently become big sisters and brothers to young faculty children.
