Honors Living Community

The Honors Living Community, comprised of four halls in the “Quad” (Andrews, Blanton, Carothers and Littlefield), houses approximately 650 outstanding students, most of whom are in one of the university’s undergraduate honors programs.

The university’s Honors Living Community offers special support, services and a close-knit community for students participating in honors programs. Living with other honors students from varied disciplines guarantees opportunities for lively conversation and assures a stimulating living and learning environment.

Students accepted into a first-year honors program are eligible for consideration for honors housing. However, there is no guarantee that students accepted into an honors program will be assigned to honors housing. Decisions about assignments to the honors living community are made jointly by the Division of Housing and Food Service and the university’s honors programs. All housing assignments, including those to the honors residence halls, are based upon original housing application dates.

If you’re interested in living in honors housing, apply for on-campus housing as soon as your admissions application is complete. The sooner you apply for housing, the better your chances of being assigned to one of the residence halls you prefer. After you sign and return your housing contract and pay your advance payment, you’ll be able to select your housing preferences online.

Students who have outstanding academic records but who are not in one of the university’s honors programs may be considered for assignment to the honors hall.
