University Honors Housing
There are a variety of excellent on-campus housing options at UC! Many UHP students choose to live in honors housing. For Fall 2023 honors housing is available in the following locations:
- Marian Spencer Hall (Floor 9) offers suite style living
- Scioto Hall (Floors 11-12) offers apartment style living
- Turner Hall (Floors 2-4) offers suite style living
These options provide a variety of accommodation and cost options to our students. Access the Housing website to learn about all of UC's on-campus options and see virtual tours of each building.
University Honors Program students are not required to live on a University Honors themed floor, but many of our students choose this option to be close to fellow students in the honors community. There are myriad options for you to consider as UC offers a wide variety of apartment, suite, and traditional style residence halls. University Housing offers numerous Living-Learning Communities and themed floors. Please see the community living section of the housing website to learn more about all your options. It's important to note that University Honors thematic floors are not living-learning communities, and do not require an additional application.
First-Year Students Housing Process
Approximately 24 hours after confirming with UC, you can access the housing application. Students who complete the housing application by the May 3 priority deadline will be guaranteed an option through University Housing.
From the housing portal, you can log-in to complete your application, create a roommate profile, and search for a roommate. Most importantly, you will designate your housing preferences, which University Housing will use to assign you to your room. When the room assignment process starts, University Honors students will be identified separately and get priority on their community preferences. University Honors students who prioritize Marian Spencer, Scioto, and Turner Halls will thus receive priority for the reserved University Honors thematic floors.
If you have created a roommate group, both of you will need to be in University Honors to be placed in a University Honors thematic floor. If you and your roommate are not University Honors students, University Housing will then place both students in the next eligible location that is available based on their preferences.
In mid-June, University Housing will email you through your UC email account with your housing assignment. Then by late July or early August, you will be directed to sign up for a move-in date and time.
Campus housing is in high demand. We suggest completing the application and paying the application fee as soon as possible if you know you'd like to live in on-campus housing. If you submit a housing application after the May 3 deadline, you are not be guaranteed housing. University Housing cannot guarantee that all incoming UHP students who want to live on a University Honors themed floor will be able to.
Returning Students and Honors Housing
On February 6, all returning and upper-class students will be able to complete the housing renewal application. University Honors has secured thematic floors in U Square Apartments for returning students starting Fall 2023. For more information about this process, contact University Housing.
