Shalhevet has its own dormitory facilities. Each student apartment is comprised of either four or six bedrooms, a kitchen, washroom facilities including showers, and a laundry room for hand washables. (Automatic washers and dryers are available elsewhere on campus.) There is a maximum of three students assigned to each dormitory room.
Shalhevet has a visting aim habyit who visits 4 nights a week. The housemother is responsible for the well being of all the students.
Dormitory life is friendly, broadening, and educational. Students come from varying backgrounds, countries, and walks of life. Together they work to create a harmonious home-like atmosphere. Off-campus private rentals are available in the neighborhood or surrounding area for older students or for those who prefer not to live in a dormitory.
Three meals a day are served in the schoolís dining hall. The Administrator of Food Services tries to accommodate special dietary needs.
Periodically the school spends Shabbat together, either on the Neve campus or out of town. Most weeks, however, the student eats Shabbat meals with families of her choice, or if she wishes, with families assigned by the school. A student may ask to be placed in Jerusalem or in other locations throughout Israel. This system enables students to experience the richness of Shabbat, meet many families living in Israel, and become acquainted with different parts of the country.
