Boarding at Keio
There are about three hundred boarders and thirty commuters. Every student is a member of a House, of which there are six, denominated K E I O N and Y. Each House consists of fifty students across the age range, creating a family of seniors and juniors. Girls are housed separately from boys.
Each House is managed by a Head of House who is responsible for the well-being of her or his students and for communication with parents. The Head of House is assisted by a Boarding Assistant. Every member of Faculty is assigned to a House and assists the Head of House with advising students. The Dean of Boarding oversees the work of Heads of House.
Tables in the Dining Hall are arranged in House configurations to ensure a family atmosphere. There is always an adult at every table to ensure good conversation and good table manners.
