First year Honors LLC Application Process

Please make sure you complete all the steps below when applying to live in the first-year Honors Living Learning Community (LLC).

Access and Admission:

We recommend that first-year Honors Joint Degree-seeking students live in the first-year Honors LLC to start their Pitt experience off on the best foot possible. However, Honors students are able to live in whatever residence hall they like; it will not affect their status in the Honors College!

The first-year Honors LLC is open to all incoming students, but priority acceptance is given to students who have been accepted into the Honors Joint Degree program.

Step One:

Complete the University's Housing and Dining Contract package. This is sent to each student via their Pitt email after they accept their offer of admission and submit their tuition deposit. When completing your contract, make sure to indicate that you are applying for the Honors Living Learning Community (LLC) under the LLC section of the contract. If you have already completed the housing process and wish to go back and indicate your interest in the first-year Honors LLC, contact Panther Central at 412-648-1100.

Step Two:

When you indicate your interest in the first-year Honors LLC, you will be taken to our supplemental application in the system. This must be completed to be considered for the first-year Honors LLC.

Step Three:

If you are applying to live with a specific roommate, you must both list each other as roommates within the University's Housing and Dining Contract Package and both complete the first-year Honors LLC supplemental application. You are more than welcome to apply for the LLC on your own and will be placed with a roommate if accepted into the first-year Honors LLC.

What happens if I am not selected for the first-year Honors LLC?

If you are not selected to live in the first-year Honors LLC, you will be placed in another first-year housing community. Your assignment will be based on your building preferences, roommate requests, roommate matching questions, and housing availability. Questions about this process should be directed to Panther Central at 412-648-1100.
