Photo gallery: Boarding school life Dorm life at Peddie is intentional; far more than a place to sleep when you're at school. With programming that forges connections, shared responsibilities for living spaces and downtime to just relax together, dorms truly become families away from home. You'll be assigned a roommate your freshman year and choose your roommate beginning your sophomore year. Room and dormitory selection is based on a lottery system. Students test their karaoke skills during a Thursday Night Dorm Bonding session. These evenings also include meaningful conversations about health and wellness, and leadership and life skills. During Peddie-Blair Week, you'll see animated rally banners hanging outside our 11 dormitories. Dorm cookouts are a regular occurrence in the fall and spring, giving students a break from routine and a chance to enjoy the warm weather. Your dorm supervisor is your cheerleader, advocate and point of contact for your residential life. Along with the other dorm faculty, they enforce dorm rules and encourage dorm fun.
