Learners' academic performance is affected by a multifaceted array of aspects. This paper focused on the effects of the boarding houses' environment on the educational performance of 279 students of Central Mindanao University from SY 2015-2016. Data concerning the students' demographic profile, academic performance, and characteristics of their boarding houses were collected using a semi-structured questionnaire. They were evaluated statistically using mean, frequency counts, percentage, and Pearson Product Moment Correlation statistical tools. Statistical outcomes showed that more than half of the respondents were below 18 years old, females, enrolled in a BS degree in Agriculture, and single. Regarding religion, Catholics composed the majority of the respondents. The monthly allowance varies according to the parent's income, as the majority were academic scholars with grades below 2.20 and 2.19 for the school's two semesters. All variables relating to the features of the boarding houses were rated as satisfactory based on rental rate, health and sanitation, facilities, accessibility, safety and security, and policies implemented. Moreover, the study found that gender and scholarship type were significantly related to academic performance. Government and private institutions can use the identified factors as the basis for educational program planning and implementation to support the learners' academic performance.
