Our home on campus is Kittredge Complex, which offers breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains. You will be a part of a dynamic community of students and staff who live together in one residence hall. At Jr. Discovery Boulder everyone is welcome and everyone belongs.
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.
Eat in the Center for Community (C4C) dining center. Enjoy 3 meals daily, and 2 on weekends, while on campus. A variety of cultural options available at 10 micro-restaurants creates a not-to-be-missed culinary experience that both educates and engages the senses. Are you a vegetarian? Do you have food allergies? Special diets are not a problem.
Our RCs are committed to the support and supervision of Jr. Discovery students. Daily sign-ins and room checks are used for your safety. We walk you to your courses and chaperone all-group activities and trips. If you have a question, just ask your RC.
Not feeling well? Jr. Discovery staff make all medical appointments, accompany students to medical facilities, obtain prescription medications, and notify parents after medical visits. Appointments are made with Wardenburg Health Center or Boulder Community Foothills Hospital.
The University of Colorado Boulder is in the heart of Boulder. Located next to the Hill and near the famous Pearl Street Mall, stores like Urban Outfitters, Patagonia, and Ben & Jerry’s are just a short walk away. With several outstanding restaurants, boutiques, and concert venues, everything is conveniently located. Want to explore Boulder? Our staff will take you and your friends several times throughout the summer.
Boulder is a stunningly beautiful college town, with many outdoor activities at its doorstep, and Denver is only an hour away. Do you prefer big city life? Experience theaters, zoos, amusement parks, and great shopping in Denver. Are you a sports fan? “Go Buffs!” Cheer on CU’s beloved mascot, Ralphie, and become a true CU-Boulder fan. It’s all included in your tuition.
There are so many great opportunities on and off campus to help you stay fit and have fun this summer. Jr. Discovery students can take advantage of the extraordinary athletic and recreation facilities at CU-Boulder during afternoon and evening activity time.
