Summer Residential Program

Pre-college students can choose to live on campus and get the true college residential life experience. Students are housed in residence halls, each sharing a room with another pre-college student. They are supervised by Pre-College Counselors, eat in dining halls, and have access to the University's many extraordinary facilities, including Rush Rhees Library and Goergen Athletic Center.

While residing on campus, pre-college students learn how to divide their time between academic work and social activities. Individual responsibility, community building, and new friendships are encouraged and facilitated by the on-campus experience.

The City of Rochester is a wonderful summer destination. The countless opportunities for excitement include the Eastman School of Music, the Rochester Public Market, tours of historic Mt. Hope Cemetery, amusement parks, sporting events, huge fairs and festivals, outdoor concerts, and many beautiful parks. Students are encouraged to take advantage of these enjoyable opportunities to get an even richer taste of the complete Rochester experience. (Weekly schedules will be available at check-in; additional fees may apply.) Click here to learn more about the City of Rochester.

We hope you'll join us for the on-campus experience—encouraging individual responsibility, community building, and new friendships!
