Students form bonds relaxing and studying in the common area on the dormitory floor. Common areas have a communal kitchen, couches and television.


Interns will share a dormitory room over the summer. Each room has two beds and work areas for roommates. Two rooms combine to make a suite with a shared living space.

Out-of-town interns may either stay with relatives in the Buffalo area or in designated dormitory housing made available through the program (what better way for a high school student to get a real sense of college life!). Dormitory living is available at nearby Canisius College. Canisius College is a four-year liberal arts college. The campus is located along the Metro rail and bus lines, creating an easy 10-minute commute to and from Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

Dugan Hall features the following amenities to provide a comfortable and safe living environment for interns:

  • Four-person suites with common bathroom
  • Common areas with adjoining kitchen facilities and cable television
  • Coin-free laundry facilities on each floor
  • Air-conditioning
  • 24-hour security
  • Live-in resident assistant (RA)
  • Free Wi-Fi Internet access

2016 room rates were $30 per night. Out-of-town students will be informed of room rates for 2017 as part of the acceptance offer. Any potential room rate increases are not anticipated to be more than $1 – $2 per night.
