Residential Options for Summer Camps @ UT Dallas

You do not need to be a Dallas area resident to attend the Summer Camps @ UT Dallas! We are opening our doors (literally) to students who live in other cities/states/countries! You will enjoy staying in our brand new facilities within the campus at a reasonable price and experience the college environment like a college student! Every student will have a private bedroom (visit to see the suite configuration). Our residential option is ONLY for high school students and mature middle school students. We do not have any “organized” group activities in the evenings/weekends, other than the meals @ Dining Hall. However, we will support the campers’ interests – we will escort the campers to go to activity center to play or swim, etc. So, we strongly encourage the campers (especially middle school campers) to register with one or more friends – up to 3 campers can share the same suite as long as they are of same gender. You can specify the preferences in the registration form.

Visit the following site to pay for the residential portion first, then proceed to pay the registration fee for your camp (coding camps @, cyber camps @ & complete list of all camps @ In other words, you do need to make 2 separate payments (one payment for the residential portion & 2nd payment for the camp itself). When you register for coding camp/cyber camp, use promotional code RESIDENTIAL to get 20% discount. There is no discount for “residential stay” portion.  

Note: Residence halls’ cleaning will likely start on August 3rd for Fall 2018 term. So, the residential option is not available beyond August 3rd.

Fees start at $350 per week. If the camper is staying for multiple weeks, each weekend will cost additional $80. Go to the registration site and click on Add to Cart – then you will see the cost in the pull-down menu of “Select # of weeks”.

Registration site:

Residential registrations should be made at least 2 weeks in advance (1 month advance is preferred). Last minute registrations will be rejected. Also, discount codes should NOT be used with residential registrations. $25 cancellation fee will apply until May 15th, then these payments will become non-refundable.

After we get your payment, we will work with you  to complete the necessary paperwork. All levels of stay include activity center usage and on-campus parking. Sunday afternoon is an ideal time to check-in & eat dinner with the counselor and other campers in the evening. Of course, you can arrive late at night or even Monday morning. Please keep us updated about the travel plans. We request you to check-out Friday evening. If needed, you can stay for additional night and check-out Saturday morning for additional $50.

For multi-week camps, weekend stay & meals are included. We are happy to provide airport/train/bus station pickup service for $50. One CS Outreach instructor will come, meet, help to load the items to the car, drop-off at the residence hall and help you to check-in. Drop-off service is available for $50 as well.

We will assign a UTD college student as a counselor for residential campers. We will add additional counselors as needed. All counselors have completed the criminal background checks and child protection training to the meet the rules & regulations of UT Dallas. Let us know if there are any questions.
