Honors students are required to live in an Honors residence hall or another university approved learning community. As a part of one of these living environments you will receive:
A strong Honors community and sense of tradition
A peer network of high-ability students who are successful in balancing involvement in academic and social activities
Access to other Honors students who are also taking Honors courses - makes it easier to find other students to go to class with and form study groups!
Increased levels of faculty involvement in residence hall activities
University Honors & Scholars Center staff members meet regularly with Honors residence hall directors and frequently participate in residence hall programs
Opportunities for involvement in residence hall government and Honors activities

University Housing has detailed information about each of these residence halls, including amenities, room dimensions and residence hall staff available on their website.
