All first-year Honors students are required to live together in the Honors College Living-Learning community located in Garrett Hall on central campus, and all Honors upperclassmen have the option to return or live elsewhere. This location positions our Honors students close to classroom buildings and major support facilities, including the Mamie Jenkins Building, Joyner Library, Student Recreation Center, West End Dining Hall and Bus Shuttle stop, and Mendenhall Student Center.
As the residence hall for the Honors College, Garrett Hall provides a number of features for our students including:
Study and social lounge space
- In-room sinks
- Recently renovated restrooms
- Wireless Internet
- Co-ed floors
- Partnerships with the Biology Living-Learning Community and the Chemistry and Physics Living-Learning Community within Garrett Hall
- Living with other academically driven students creates a quiet environment, in which student can focus easily and study
Please note: Honors freshmen will be assigned to a room in Garrett Hall with another Honors student. Roommate requests are encouraged; however, such requests may only be made for other Honors College students. Non-program roommates are not permitted.
The Honors College also permits students to be exempted from the freshmen residency policy if they so choose. For more details about the the exemption application process or about housing matters, please visit the Campus Living Office.
