Lee House and Sanborn House
Our newest dorms, Lee House (for girls) and Sanborn House (for boys) opened in the fall of 2017. Each 30,000 square-foot, three-story building features 45 single student bedrooms, four faculty apartments, inviting common area space, and elevators. The dorms are named in honor of longtime faculty members Peggy Lee and Wayne Sanborn.
