Campus Life & Activities

Summer Discovery students live in their own air-conditioned residence hall at Callaway House, a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility that is only one block from campus. This residence hall is exclusive to Summery Discovery students who can get to know their peers in a comfortable setting separate from the university students.

Living together in style and comfort at UT Austin

At Callaway House, 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.

Delicious All-You-Can-Eat Dining on Campus

Enjoy two meals daily, while on campus, in the modern Café at Callaway. Choose from daily options including pizza, sandwiches, and salad bar. On weekends, enjoy the local food scene with your dining card. Are you a vegetarian? Do you have food allergies? Special diets are not a problem.

Your Health + 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 mandated for your safety. You are free to walk around campus and 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, Urgent Care, or St. David’s Medical Center.
