New Student Housing Request Form
Dear New Boarding Families,
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Avon Old Farms School. As the Dean of Students, I am responsible for collecting information from new students and then working with a team of people to assign rooms and advisors.
I ask that you and your son work on this document together. The more information that you can provide – the better!
While making roommate and advisor assignments is not an exact science, we almost always get it right. When we don’t, there is a process in place to make changes.
We ask that you complete and submit this form by July 1.
*Room assignments are not announced until the opening day of school in September.
Please know that room / roommate assignments are NOT disclosed until the boys arrive to school in the fall.
- We recommend that new students do NOT bring big gaming systems to Avon in the fall.
- Boys are allowed to have a small refrigerator in their rooms but it can only be 1.7 cubic feet. Since these refrigerators can be purchased locally, we recommend that boys wait until they arrive before buying.
- Other items you should consider bringing: a small fan, 2 combination locks, shoe organizer (space is tight so one that hangs from a door), a plastic container to store snacks.
