Our philosophy is that you can learn outside the classroom as well as inside of it. What better way to do that than to provide intellectually and communally engaged students the opportunity to live together and learn from one another? Honors Housing is a diverse academic and social community that is shaped by the interests of its students. It is a place where students can put their curiosity to work engaging in topics and debates from the classroom and beyond. They also provide amazing opportunities for academic support. Additionally, though, they are places where students can unwind, relax, and enjoy collegiate life outside the classroom.
These communities have residents who hail from every corner of the globe, represent virtually every major, and have a great many different interests. Despite these differences, all of these students share a commitment to academic excellence, student involvement, and responsible living.
The UHC is not a membership organization. UHC community activities, including applying to Honors Housing, are open to students throughout the campus. We often say it is best to think of the UHC as a state of mind. You don’t enroll in the honors college, and we don’t offer membership; rather, you engage with the Honors College by tapping into its diversity of resources and unique opportunities.
