Each of the multistoried International Boarding Houses accommodates about 60 students, on each floor. They are designed as homes, not hostels. Each storey has its own comfortably furnished common room with entertainment facilities and ample space for socializing. The International Boarding House is supervised by an experienced residential Senior Warden. All students, whether boarders or day boarders belong to a small Mentor Group led by a Faculty Mentor who has the responsibility for their personal welfare and academic progress. The professional counsellor completes the pastoral team.
