Welcome to Dover Boarding

Welcome to Dover Boarding

Greetings from Dover boarding! 

It is a pleasure to tell you more about boarding at Dover Campus, and I do hope you will take the opportunity to see first hand all that we have to offer. At Dover Campus, we have provided generations of boarders with a culturally rich boarding experience that nurtures students' self-management, self-discipline and leadership. We aim to provide an outstanding residential experience, in which boarders make friends from all over the world, making their ‘home from home’ in our spacious, excellently resourced campus, close to central Singapore and all its amenities. 

Our three vibrant boarding houses—respectively named after Nelson Mandela as the UWC movement’s honourary president, Kurt Hahn as its founder as well as civil rights activist, Maya Angelou—are friendly, comfortable and inviting, with private outdoor gardens in which to unwind. In true UWC spirit, our boarders thrive in this close-knit, caring international residential community, made up of 50 different nationalities; parents frequently tell us how their son or daughter has become so much more independent, assured and self-reliant since joining boarding at our campus.

In learning how to live with each other, and through their participation in numerous activities, events and trips, our boarders not only grow and flourish as individuals, but as members of our boarding family. 

In line with Kurt Hahn’s inspiring vision of an integrated multi-national residential experience, Dover boarders share a room (with ensuite) with peers from other countries. Our highly experienced team of house staff ensures that boarders feel supported, both in terms of personal well being and academic progress; similarly, our 24-hour clinic ensures that professional medical support is immediately at hand. UWCSEA’s exciting iLearn programme is a key part of the Dover boarding experience, and we provide all necessary technical infrastructure and support, reflecting our commitment to 21st century learning. 

There is so much to do in Dover boarding—whether it is study, making new friends, cultural activities or taking part in trips or sports! Boarding at Dover Campus has served our boarders and their families over five decades, and we believe we offer an exceptional, transformational boarding experience. If you would like to arrange a visit, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us.

A day in Dover Boarding

Residential programme

UWCSEA offers a residential boarding experience unmatched by traditional boarding school programmes. While we are a large and busy international school, located in a fast-paced urban environment that serves as a global hub, our relatively small community of boarding students who live on campus are a vital part of the College. 

Our ethos, common to all 18 UWC schools and colleges around the world, promotes cultural diversity and a values-based education. The community is truly global, representing a diversity of experience, cultures and passions. Our boarders are given a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the life of both the school and our community.
