University Honors Housing


Choosing where to live is a very important decision! Honors housing is available on and off campus. We encourage you to explore your honors housing options!

Honors housing is available for University Honors freshmen in Morgens Hall (Opening fall '13) Turner Hall, Daniels Hall (limited spaces) and Stratford Heights (Buildings I and II).
 

Why do students choose Honors Housing?

Most University Honors students choose to live in honors housing because of the support, level of cooperation and friendship they encounter. These things help to make the transition to college much easier. Honors floors are full of laughter, music, and the occasional midnight pizza party. Students who live in honors housing have told us that they find it easier to form study groups. A freshman student said it best, "I can ask people to turn down the radio if I need to study and they will. Partly because I will do the same for them when they have an exam and partly because we all know each other and want to do well in school." 
 

University Honors Program Housing

There are a variety of excellent on-campus housing options at UC! Many UHP students choose to live in honors housing. For Fall 2019, honors housing is available in the following locations:

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 in honors housing, but many of our students choose this option to be close to the honors community. Special-interest housing options are available as well. Please see the community living section of the housing website to learn more about those other options.

First-Year Students and Honors Housing

You must first confirm your admission to UC and pay the matriculation fee. Starting March 1, you can access the housing application only after confirming your admission and paying that matriculation fee. It can take up to 48 hours between the time the matriculation fee is paid and when you will have access to the housing application. 

The order in which students self-select their housing assignment is set by the date and time that they complete the housing application and pay the associated deposit or fees. Campus housing is in high demand. If you have a preference on where you'd like to live, we suggest completing the application as soon as possible. If you submit a housing application after the deadline, you may not be guaranteed housing.

In mid-May, the Office of Housing & Food Services will contact all incoming University Honors Program freshmen who have submitted a housing application and paid the associated fees. You will receive details on the process to self-assign your residence hall room. You will be able to select any space on campus that is available to you and any roommates you have identified. All students in a roommate group must be UHP students in order to select a space in an honors community. We cannot guarantee that all incoming UHP students who want honors housing will be be able to select a space in an honors community.

All questions regarding housing and the selection process should be directed to the Office of Housing and Food Services.

Returning Students and Honors Housing

Returning University Honors students will be able to select residential spaces in honors communities or any available general residential space through the Returner Housing Application process, which starts in mid-January. Some spaces still fill quickly, so you should become very cognizant of the timelines to select your space. This process usually closes by late February. All students self-select their space based on Housing & Food Services timeline for contract renewal. See Housing & Food Services for the timeline for housing applications and self-assignment. Here are more details of the housing application schedule.

For more information on the housing application process, contact the Office of Housing and Food Services.

Qualifications

Students must be members of the University Honors Program to live in honors housing when the housing selection is made. Students who do not meet the qualifications to live in honors housing may be removed from their honors housing placement. If this occurs, these students may be placed in another general campus housing option.
