Summary: Residential life at Middlesex takes place in the nine dormitories on campus. Proctors, senior leaders selected by the faculty and students, live on each floor in order to be available for all students. Middlesex students enjoy vertical housing, in which all classes live together, allowing for role modeling by upperclassmen and greater integration among the classes. Seventy-five percent of rooms on campus are singles. Two to three faculty families live in every Middlesex house. The formal and informal interactions in the houses between students, faculty and families create an environment that promotes close personal relationships and balanced lives. Beyond the dormitories, the academic facilities, and the athletic center, the simple, dignified chapel provides the campus its stately center and a community meeting place. The dining hall includes a student center complete with snack bar, game rooms, and lounge area.
