Residence Hall Life!

Living on campus is an important part of the college experience, and the Upward Bound Summer Program provides free on-campus room and board at the University of Wyoming.

    their experience with other Upward Bound students.
  • While staying at the halls, students will eat at the newly renovated Washakie Dining Center.
