Experience an amazing campus at University of Colorado Boulder, and learn to be independent with the help of our incredible staff. With weekend trips around Denver, to major league sports games, water and theme parks, museums, canyons and more, you are bound to have an amazing time during your summer at CU-Boulder.
Our home on campus is in the newly renovated 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.
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.
Enjoy three meals every weekday, and two on weekends, while on campus. Alferd Packer Grill is a multi-venue hot spot in the middle of campus open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is known for its vast salad bar with locally sourced options and an allergen-free section.
Our RCs are committed to the support and supervision of Summer Discovery students. Daily sign-ins and room checks are mandated for your safety. You are free to walk around campus, the Hill, and Pearl Street (our ‘home areas’) 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 Wardenburg Health Center or Boulder Community Foothills Hospital.
There are so many great opportunities on and off campus to help you stay fit and have fun this summer. Take a study break and enjoy the extraordinary athletic and recreational facilities at CU-Boulder. You have access to them all.
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. Come see why CU-Boulder students love this place.
