Residential Life & Dining

Residential Housing
The experience of living in a resiPre-College Summer Dorm Roomsdence hall prior to attending college is an invaluable one. Pre-College Summer students will stay on-campus in very comfortable air conditioned University housing with a roommate that has been assigned to them. Pre-College Summer housing units are taken off-line and floors are specifically dedicated to the Pre-College Summer program by gender. Bring a favorite pillow, otherwise, all bed linens are supplied.  In 2017, summer participants resided in Garrigus Suites.

If you are attending with a friend, you may request to room together. Each student must submit a request indicating that there is a mutual interest to be placed in the same room at time of registration. It is important to note that roommate requests will be considered but are not guaranteed.

Commuter Students
We will not have an option for students to commute. All students must reside on campus and plan to stay the entire duration of the program.
