University of Texas Austin - Residential Life

Luxurious living at the Callaway House

Our home in Austin is the Callaway House, a brand new state-of-the-art freshman student residence one block from campus. You will be a part of a dynamic community of students and staff living together in one residence hall.

Whether you’re watching a movie or working on a group project, it’s great to live with your friends. And if you have any questions, your Resident Counselor (RC) lives down the hall and is there for you 24/7.

Here’s our set up:

  • Live in single or double rooms in a 4 person suite.
  • Each suite has a furnished living room, eat in kitchenette, and 2 or 4 private bathrooms.  
  • Every air-conditioned room includes a bed, study desk, dresser, closet, and wifi.
  • Rooftop pool and fitness center, TV lounges, game rooms, laundry facilities, and the Summer Discovery office are all in our residence hall.
  • Live a short walk from academic buildings, Guadalupe Street, and the Texas Union student center. Did we mention that Callaway House has a 4,600 square foot recreational lounge with billiards, foosball, video games, and a theater?

Delicious all-you-can-eat dining

Eat in the modern Café at Callaway. Enjoy 2 meals everyday, when on campus. Choose from daily options including pizza oven, deli sandwiches, grill station, and salad bar. Vegetarian? Food Allergy? Special diets are not a problem.

Your health and safety are our primary concern

Our RCs are committed to the support and supervision of Summer Discovery students. Daily sign-ins and room checks are used for your safety. You are free to walk around campus and Austin (our ‘home area’) in small groups. If you have a question, RCs are on duty to help.

Not feeling well? Summer Discovery staff make all medical appointments, accompany students to medical facilities, obtain prescription medications, and notify parents after medical visits. Appointments are made with University Health Services, Medspring Urgent Care Center, or St. David’s Medical Center.
