Boarding House Structure
The Seymour College Boarding House is a lively community of approximately 100 girls, and the staff who look after them.
Year 12 students are allocated a private room, while the younger students live in shared bedrooms, generally on a twin-share basis. Rooms and roommates are changed each term. Changing rooms is important, as it builds new social connections, resilience and tolerance, as well as promoting diversity. These are the core values in the Boarding House.
Well-equipped common rooms are available to the different year levels and students use these spaces for socialising, studying and recreation, or to prepare a snack.
Wireless internet is available throughout the Boarding House, according to the College's One-to-One Technology Plan. All boarders are able to access the College network at any time, from anywhere on campus, using iPad, laptop or desktop technology.
The College campus is kept alive after hours by the boarders, who use the facilities for recreational activities and socialising. Visitors are welcome and we encourage families to spend some time with us, share a meal, and celebrate special events such as the Swimming Carnival and Sports Day.
