Housing and Dining

Want to test-drive life on campus before your freshman year? Experience all the American University campus has to offer. When you choose to stay on campus, you receive access to free wireless high speed internet, a state-of-the-art health center, several computing complexes, several food options, and other great facilities.

Each person staying on campus for the Kogod Summer Institute will be placed in a two-person room in one of our residence halls, which contain storage units, vanities, closets, beds, and desks. Towels and linens will be provided, however you may chose to bring your own. A Kogod Summer Institute Resident Assistant will stay on the same floor.

All meals are included in the program fee and students will need to bring extra money for incidentals and snacks.
