MCI provides residential buildings for students who choose to live on campus: 

Each room includes a bed, desk with bookshelf, wardrobe, and a chair for each student. Students who live at MCI have access to campus-wide Wi-fi, dorm lounges with big-screen televisions, onsite laundry and kitchen facilities, and a student center with a dining room that provides three healthy meals a day and the student lounge with a piano, Karaoke machine, billiards, and a ping-pong table. 

Boarding students eat meals in the Savage Family Dining Room, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. The Savage Family Dining Room is located in the Trustee Memorial Student Center that includes a student union where students can relax after classes, play pool, or enjoy impromptu performances in the Patterson Lounge. The Pittsfield community is a convenient walk from campus, where students can shop, go out to eat, see a movie or have coffee, tea or ice cream with friends.

MCI's two gyms and weight rooms are open after school and on weekends for students who want to exercise, and the Powell Library is open during the school day and after school for students. The Visual and Performing Arts Education Center in the JR Cianchette Building is open after school and during some evenings  for students to practice and seek additional instruction in music, art or performance.


Weekend Activities for Boarding Students

Every weekend, boarding students are offered a number of fun activities and trips. Students can choose which activities they'd like to join or they can relax or study on campus. Activities include shopping, dining at local restaurants, going to the movies, or taking chaperoned group trips to Portland or Boston, participating in local hiking expeditions, shopping in larger towns like Waterville or Bangor, attending sporting events, going to concerts, or visiting local museums.
