Honors Housing

As an honors student, you have the option of living in honors-specific housing.

Eligible First-year honors students live in Emry Hall. They are traditionally the only freshmen to do so. Eligible second- and third-year students have the option of a dedicated honors floor, but locations vary yearly. Honors floors include a study lounge and featured Resident Assistants, who are older honors students.

A limited number of upper-division honors students enjoy living in The 2-1-2.  Purchased back in 2020, The 2-1-2 resembles that of an off-campus experience and provides them with housing amenities. It features dedicated social and study spaces, laundry facilities, and a full-sized kitchen.

Room with your friends

Honors housing allows for roommate requests, though both roommates must be eligible members of the honors program. They must identify each other on their housing request forms. Residents of The 2-1-2 are chosen by the Office of Residential Life, but individual room assignments are left to the students themselves. Roommate assignments are the sole province of the Office of Residential Life, and do not involve the Honors director.

Freshmen who wish to live in Honors housing can request it on their Honors application but must still submit a standard housing contract with Residence Life. Incoming freshmen who wish to guarantee placement in Honors housing must be previously admitted or submit their Honors application by April 1. Notification schedules for honors housing are the same as for general university housing.
