About Dayal House

Maumee Valley’s boarding program is housed in the $1.6 million Dayal House. The residence hall was purposefully designed to create a family-like atmosphere for residential students. From the spacious Commons to the well-equipped main kitchen, the Dayal House feels like a home. The Student Life Staff includes four adults who forge close relationships with students and guide them in building friendships and developing important social and leadership skills.

Located across the Anning Lawn from the Upper School, the Dayal House is the place on campus where boarding, international, and day students meet after school to work on projects, get tutoring help with homework/papers, or just hang out.

Student life at Dayal House

The experienced and well-trained staff, led by the Director of Student Life, provides guidance and mentorship as they meet the needs of the students in the residential community. With a 7:1 student-resident faculty ratio, staff members know the students extremely well and work with them as they develop as students, leaders, global citizens, and young adults.

The Student Life staff emphasizes the integral role a vibrant residential experience plays in the overall education of our students. As advisors for the students, the staff does an incredible job in fostering a culture of trust, respect, openness, and personal responsibility among all of the students.
