Day Student Life

At Home On The Hill

Day students have the opportunity to explore every aspect of life on the Hill, with the caveat of returning home at the end of the day (whether that’s at 5 p.m. after practice or 10 p.m. when boarders check-in is up to the student!). Every performance, every meal, every van trip on the weekend is available to day students. And, as our day students come to discover early into their career at Westminster, every dorm room quickly opens to them, as well. 
With nearly a third of our community going home at the end of each day, day students claim spaces, such as the Armour Academic Center, as their home base, where they can chat, put sports gear or backpacks into lockers and await pick-up. Day students often find that Westminster feels like home, so they stay in a boarder’s room overnight on a Saturday. 
Just as Westminster strives to create a comfortable, home-like setting for its boarding population, so too does it aim to include all day students in all aspects of our community. By the end of their Sixth Form year, many day students get accustomed to hearing from peers and teachers, “I thought you were a boarder because you’re here so often!”
