Bulldog Scholars Academy

Housing and Meals

Housing and meals are provided by Bulldog Scholars Academy. Scholars are offered meals three times a day in a safe-socially distanced environment and housed in single rooms in on-campus residence halls. Men and women live on separate floors with resident mentors of the same gender. Hall amenities include a laundry facility, floor lounges, and kitchenettes. Bulldog Scholars Academy maintains a low resident staff-to-student ratio to provide participants support in their transition to college.

*Please note that campus dining is onlyavailable during scheduled mealtimes in the summer. Participants are encouraged to pack snacks and microwavable food. Students are welcome to bring dorm-sized refrigerators; however, microwaves are not permitted unless they come as a micro-fridge combo. A refrigerator and microwave are available on each floor in the residence hall.
