What to Expect

Dining

All participants will receive Dining Dollars on their VolCard for the purchase of breakfast and lunch for the duration of the program. Dinner will be provided by The Fresh Food Company, located in Stokely Residence Hall, Monday–Friday evenings. Students will receive a wrist band for entry into dinner. VolCards are issued during orientation prior to Math Camp.

Accommodation

Residential students will live in Reese Hall, a UT campus residence hall. These students must be in the building by Midnight Sunday–Thursday for the duration of camp. Participants will check in with their counselor each night. Repeated violations can result in being dismissed from Math Camp.

Non-Residential students (whose permanent address is within a fifty-mile radius of campus) can choose to stay at home and commute to campus each day. For these students, lunch is provided Monday–Friday for the duration of the program. Non-residential students will be able to participate in all social activities.

What to Bring

All participants:

  • Casual clothing is appropriate for the entire program. Bring clothing for both hot and cold weather (classrooms can get chilly)
  • Rain gear, including an umbrella (sessions will take place rain or shine)
  • Comfortable walking shoes
  • Bag or backpack to carry your items to and from classroom sessions
  • Pencils and paper
  • Money to cover purchases and activities not covered by Math Camp registration fees (i.e.: weekend or after-hour meals and group excursions).

Additional items residential students should consider bringing:

  • Alarm clock (there is no wake-up service)
  • All personal toiletries, including a towel, shampoo, conditioner, and soap, etc. Personal items can be purchased from nearby stores.
  • Shower shoes (shower facilities will be used by other residential attendees)
  • Linens, a pillow, and a blanket or comforter for a twin-sized bed (rooms may get cold).

Parking

When you arrive on campus, check in at the Reese Hall (view interactive campus map). If you will be parking your car on campus during Math Camp, you will need a parking pass. You will be able to load and unload your car using the thirty-minute parking and the drive way located around the Residence Hall, and you will be given a temporary student parking pass to use during math camp. Non-residential students should check in at Reese Hall to receive a temporary commuter parking pass. Students will need to purchase parking passes for the fall semester.

  • All classroom sessions and instruction with professors, mentors, and advisors
  • Transportation to and from social activities and day excursions
  • UT resources provided to students during the program

Math Camp counselors will host a series of programs designed to help students transition to UT and get acclimated to the Knoxville community.

Class attendance is required throughout the duration of Math Camp. Students who are excessively late or have more than three absences will be dismissed from camp with no option for a refund.
