Why Choose the Honors Community?

The Honors Community includes themed floors, philanthropic and service projects, honors courses taught on-site, and social activities. It's a fully furnished residence hall where you can live alone in a super single room or with a roommate in a double. All rooms have suite-style bathrooms. All floors are co-ed and meal plans are required. Students who are in the University Honors Program, Trustee Scholars, students who have at least a 2.5 GPA, or are accepted into one of the specialized living-learning communities in this building are eligible. Other students may be assigned as needed if space is available.

Location

The Honors Community is a short walk or shuttle ride of the main part of campus. Enjoy the outdoor spaces around it, including gazebos, basketball courts, the Garden of the Senses, or hike one of the paths through the woods. View the Honors Community on the campus map
