Honors Learning Communities

As an honors student, you may choose (but are not required) to live in one of the Honors Learning Communities (HLC). The HLCs are a living & learning experience for honors students. Benefits include dedicated study areas, on-site honors advising and workshops, and honors exclusive events. Honors students who choose not to live in the HLCs are welcome to visit and participate in events and activities.

Students will complete the housing preference form, which includes the option to preference the Honors Learning Community or an Honors Freshman Interest Group (if you have been admitted to honors at the time of submission). More information about the housing process, Honors Learning Communities, and FIGs can be found on the Residential Life website.
