Tilton prides itself on the seamless integration of day students into our campus population, acknowledging their significant contributions to our academic program, athletic teams, the arts and even dorm life.  As a school, we seek to provide day students with every opportunity to immerse themselves in all aspects of the residential life experience, thus providing day students with space in the residence halls to use during the day.  Students are typically assigned three roommates, and have space to study, relax during downtime, or change for any formal evening events.  Given their involvement in residential life, day students may also apply to become dormitory proctors  and assume a leadership position in this facet of school life.  

Day students are permitted to stay on campus when evening or morning commitments, or weather, warrant such a situation.  In these cases, students must receive prior permission from the residential life staff and Student Life Office.  Students are also able to stay through Study Hall hours to collaborate on school projects or seek extra help.  

Day students traveling from the greater Concord are able to take advantage of a Tilton Shuttle, which runs from the Capital City to Tilton School each morning.  For more information on this service, please contact the Admissions Office at (603) 286-1733.  Day students possessing a valid driver’s license may use their cars for transportation to and from campus only.
