 Bulldog Scholars Academy

Housing and Meals


Housing and meals are covered in the cost of the program fee. Participants are housed in an on-campus residence hall. Men and women stay on separate floors in the same building with Resident Mentors of the same gender. Hall amenities include a laundry facility and floor lounges and kitchenettes on each floor. The lounge, located off the lobby, is utilized for studying, programs, classes, and also has Direct TV. Other amenities include a conference room, and computer lab. Rooms are assigned randomly. Roommate requests are considered but not guaranteed. Roommate requests may be made in the registration form but will only be honored if both parties request to room together. Bulldog Scholars Academy maintains a low resident staff-to-student ratio (1:6) to provide participants plenty of support in their transition to college life. 

Cafeteria-style meals are provided three times a day in the Student Center Dining Hall.*

* Please note that food services is only available during mealtime 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.
