Every effort is made to create a family atmosphere for the residents, as well as to provide a range of social and recreational opportunities. The snack bar and lounge with TV and DVD/VCR are popular places for relaxation. Meals are taken in the dining hall, where the emphasis is on Italian cuisine. In their free time, students can use the library, sports and music facilities or hang out on the terrace, enjoying the splash of the fountain and the Roman atmosphere.


Boarding Facilities

The Dorm

As our boarding community at St. Stephen's is small, we strive for a nurturing and inclusive atmosphere that fosters a sense of camaraderie in a supportive and structured environment.


Our dorm is supervised by the head of boarding and the residential life coordinator with the assistance of six faculty members who reside on the premises.


Located on campus on the two top floors in a secured area of the main building, the dorm houses approximately 40 students who live in double or triple rooms. Each floor is exclusive, though on occasion, Open Hall Night allows boys and girls to visit each others floors, with faculty supervision.


Students can personalize their living spaces with photos, posters and other wall decorations. Students are also allocated a weekly laundry time based on their free periods, and the School offers a sheet service.

Dorm Rooms

Most dorm rooms come in one of two styles: rooms with raised beds and desks underneath, and rooms with traditional bunk beds and separate desks. Every student has a large wardrobe that has a central rack to hang clothes, drawers below, and a shelf above. The wardrobe, desk and bed are the major pieces in each room. There are also two drawers which go under the bed or desk. We have triple and double rooms available. An average double room is approximately 4 m² / 43 ft².

In terms of decorations and rugs, most roommates discuss how they want to decorate their rooms, and then they pick up whatever they need at Ikea during opening week. Most students store things in their upper closets or on top of the closets. We also have a storage closet on the girls' hallway where they can store items. There is also room beneath the bed or desk, depending on which type of room they are in.


We recommend that students bring two sets of single sheets, a duvet and duvet cover and towels; students may want to bring one set and then purchase a second when we go to IKEA during orientation. Dormitory beds are singles and measure 99 cm x 206 cm; or 39” x 81”.
