On May 25, 2018 the Brewster community celebrated the opening of its newest campus residence.
By investing in Brewster's South Campus, we aim to further enrich a residential life experience where learning happens spontaneously, where deep relationships are built, and where students are lifted and find joy in their surroundings.
Toad Hall, the first of at least two new residence halls, opened in May 2018. The new facility was built with very specific goals. It is light-filled with an oversized common room designed to draw students out of their rooms and bring them together. It has four faculty residences attached to a 22-student dormitory -- creating adult-to-student ratios unheard of in boarding schools. Rooms include a mix of singles and doubles, even some private bathrooms for students with specific needs. It offers quiet study areas and group meeting areas, and was designed with neighborhood in mind.
Our second new residence hall will complement Toad Hall as a home for lower school boys. We will relocate the Maintenance Facility to create a beautiful residential neighborhood, radically reimagining circulation on south campus to make it almost entirely pedestrian. A meandering, tree-lined path that bounds a large greensward will connect this residential district to Brewster's core campus.
A Week in the Life of Toad Hall
Brewster's communications associate, Marta Carreño, spent a week checking in on the ninth grade girls in Toad Hall, Brewster's newest residence hall. What she found was nothing short of a family network, with girls from six countries and seven states living and growing together. Enjoy a glimpse into life in Toad Hall in the slideshow below.
Set historic Wolfeboro, on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee, a mixture of bold academic buildings and traditional New England houses, makes the setting truly unique.
Toad Hall's purposeful design makes it one of the best dorms on campus.
