Learning to live with someone different from yourself is a fundamental and critical piece of WRA's residential life program and it is through living with a roommate that some of the most poignant memories and life lessons are shared and learned. Boarders will be given tools and freshmen will have some formal training in how to advocate for yourself, actively listen, negotiate and more. Issues or conflicts are resolved with a dorm head, duty crew member, prefect, advisor and/or the Student Life Office. Only in highly unusual circumstances will we allow a roommate switch to happen.
Day students are welcome in the dorms when they are accompanied by a dorm resident. Only with special permission may day students be in the dorm common room, or in the dorm in general, during study hours. Day students can spend a weekend night with a boarder friend with permission from the dorm head and the day student parents.
