Dormitories

We have four dormitories spread across our campus. Two are located at the Cape Eleuthera Institute which can each accommodate 16 people in each. Each dorm is divided into two separate rooms, containing eight beds in each with an adjoining common bathroom. The other two dormitories are located on the Island School campus and can accommodate 24 people in each. Each dorm is divided into two wings which can contain a maximum of 12 beds and a separate bathroom. The wings are separated by a shared common room with couches. These larger dorms are available mid-December through February and mid-June through August only.

Hallig House

Hallig House is the hallmark of CEI’s campus, showcasing our belief that we can reduce our impact on our environment and live more responsibly in a place. It represents an opportunity to engage visitors of all ages into thinking about how built spaces can reflect our values about community and the environment and inspire creative thinking. The building was designed as an educational model for island nations. Led by Warren Wagner of W3 Architects and designed by a team of conservation systems specialists, the building features innovative elements, which solve specific regional issues. The building’s structure and shape, construction materials, and renewable energy and waste management systems all demonstrate how local and national development can maximize locally available resources while minimizing impact on local environments. The insulation is made from recycled denim, the kitchen counter top from recycled glass bottles, and the decking from post consumer plastic and tires. Other design features include 14 photovoltaic panels to power the building, two passive solar hot water heaters, and rain water catchment systems for running water needs.

The creation of Hallig House was made possible by a network of partnerships including local contractor John Norris Carey, and through the charitable contributions of Bobbie Hallig, Daniel Prigmore, Francesca Forrestal, Sally Searle, and Fred Danforth.

Anderson-Cabbot Graduate Hall

This LEED-certified building is our most recent addition to the CEI campus. The graduate hall is three stories tall with an observation tower, kitchen, faculty proctor apartment and space for up to 3- beds.The building was a generous gift from the Anderson and Cabbot families and was primarily built with local materials.
