Honors Housing

The Honors Program provides a framework that helps students develop as scholars, lifelong learners and contributing members of their communities. To support this mission we offer special Living Learning Communities for talented students who take learning seriously, respect one another and like to have fun.

There are two Living Learning Communities that support and enhance our Fellows’ development within the program: the Kenan Honors Pavilion and the Honors Floor in Colonnades C. Each has unique benefits. The Pavilion is a stand-alone community with its own building that is centrally located near the Academic Village’s many classrooms. The Pavilion has very nice rooms, excellent common spaces, laundry and kitchen facilities, and a resident faculty member. Colonnades C is in a brand new complex with large rooms in various layouts, a variety of common spaces, and proximity to the Colonnades dining facilities.

Both communities have the support of Residence Life and the Honors Program for events and outings throughout the year.

Application For Current Students

If you’d like to live in second-floor Colonnades or the Honors Pavilion, you need to follow all the procedures required by the Office of Residence Life and fill out a short application for the Honors Program describing why you’d like to live there and what you’d contribute to the community. Applications will be available in early February and are due in mid-February. Dr. Miller will send an e-mail with detailed instructions about the process.

Application For Incoming Students

Residence Life will have housing applications available in late spring. If you’d like to live in a learning community, there is a check-off and you fill out a short application describing why you’d like to live there and what you think you have to offer to that community. Honors housing is an option. In recent years, about 80 percent of incoming Honors students applied for Honors housing.
