Berkshire has 10 dorms, ranging in size and feel. Various configurations exist, with no more than two students per dorm. Dorms are organized by "vertical housing," which means that every dorm has students from each grade, allowing upperclassmen to serve as role models. It also means that new students are quickly integrated into the community. Faculty apartments adjoin each hall and two senior prefects provide leadership in everything from monitoring study hall and sustainability to serving as mentors and organizing Winter Carnival events.
