Pacific Institute participants will live for two weeks on the University of the Pacific's Stockton Campus, consistently voted one of the most beautiful college campuses in the West. Students will live in the same residence halls where our university students reside during the academic year.  


All students will stay in Pacific's traditional housing facilities. Central to campus, these communities put students within short walking distance of dining facilities, the Janet Leigh Theatre, and the library. Institute students will have the opportunity to interact with current Pacific students who will be in the halls to assist and support them throughout the 2 weeks while on campus. Spaces in the residential halls are available for group and one on one study as well as social activities.

Food and Dining

All students will be provided meals during their summer program. Whether students are in the mood for a quick bite, a filling meal, or a simple coffee run, Pacific has something to satisfy everyone. Every meal is made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients by our food provider, Bon Appetit.

Co-curricular activities

The Pacific Institute also will feature co-curricular activities each night. Some of the activities will include movies under the stars as well as films at the Janet Leigh Theatre, bocci and chess tournaments, pickup basketball, volleyball and soccer games, arts and crafts, karaoke and access to the Eve Zimmerman Tennis Center and the Douglass M. Eberhardt Aquatic Center.

Safe and Secure

Professional and college-student staff will supervise the residence hall experience and cocurricular activities. Campus security is provided by the university’s own police department (Stanford University and Pacific are the only two private universities in California with their own police departments).
