Ever wonder what lies beyond the desk and the walls of your school?
There is a whole other educational experience out there and itʼs far beyond your expectations. Our boarding facility is smart and cool, and itʼs a place where learning is loved, exploration is mandatory, challenge is welcomed, fun is guaranteed, and opportunities for growth are everywhere. Itʼs an educational grounding that goes beyond preparing you for university… it gets you ready for life. Are you ready to create your own path forward and truly see what you are capable of?
Welcome to Ljubljana International School’s (LIS) Boarding Section where confidence, motivation, independence, and excitement are just a few of the elements that students will encounter.
What is LIS Boarding?
If you are a boarding student, your dorm is more than just an area where you study and sleep – it is genuinely your home away from home, a place to hang out with classmates and friends, an area to play, watch movies or sporting events on the living room’s large screen TV, focus hard during study hours, chat with teachers, and/or just enjoy the moment.
Students will also experience the LIS lifestyle with a roommate. Living with another student is a particularly valuable experience as it teaches students about new cultures, how to live respectfully and harmoniously with someone else, and most importantly, it offers the potential for lasting bonds and lifelong friendships. The majority of our students express that living with other students is the favorite part of boarding school life!
No student can truly achieve what they are ultimately capable of in a boarding school or elsewhere, without an appropriate amount of support, care, and direction. The LIS boarding section is a small, intimate, and personal boarding establishment with a very cozy and friendly atmosphere.

The breakfast menu alternates between offerings such as eggs and bacon, an assortment of croissants and pastries, cereal or porridge, fruit and yogurt, toast and breakfast potatoes.

During the weekends, a self-serve brunch buffet is available in the Dining Hall.
