In a dormitory setting designed to mimic a university environment — but with the additional staffing, support services and structure to guide Upper School residents — Gilmour’s residential life program develops habits and skills for success in college and beyond. 
Our co-educational Murphy Residence Hall is divided into single-gender east and west wings joined in the center by common areas, including a kitchen well-stocked with snacks, a dining room, multiple lounges, a great room, outdoor patio and basketball court, computer lab, mailroom and 24/7 staff office. At capacity, nearly 70 students learn to live, work and interact as in the real world, guided by eight live-in proctors, plus a house mother and a dean of residential life, who live in adjacent private residences. In addition to staff, security cameras, an alarm system and an electronic check-in/out keypad help maintain student safety and accountability.

Four times per week, students can check in with the school nurse in the residence hall before the school day begins. Sunday through Thursday, rooms are checked for basic cleanliness in the morning, and at night students keep up with their studies during mandatory supervised study hall. On weekends, residential students may participate in a number of on- and off-campus athletic, extracurricular, academic, cultural or recreational activities, with plenty of unstructured time for balance. Sunday evenings the entire hall gathers for prayer service, reflection and team-building, while special trips and holiday celebrations occur throughout the year.
Whether you're drawn to Gilmour Academy’s hockey program, our academics or our deep sense of community, we welcome you and invite you to find out more.
