All Honors students are required to live together in the Honors College Living-Learning community during their first year on campus. In the 2014-2015 academic year, the living-learning community is located in Garrett Hall on central campus. Beginning in fall 2015, the Honors College is excited to announce the relocation of our living-learning community to a brand new, state-of-the-art residence hall - Gateway Hall. All first-year Honors students beginning with the entering class of 2015 will be required to live together in Gateway Hall, located on College Hill. All Honors upperclassmen who choose to return to housing in fall 2015 will have the option to return to Garrett Hall, relocate to Gateway Hall, or live elsewhere.
As the residence hall for the Honors College, Gateway Hall will provide a number of features for our students including:
- Special event spaces
- Outdoor courtyards
- Beach volleyball and basketball facilities
- A computer lab
- Rooms specifically for upperclassmen that include a private bathroom
- Programming spaces
- Study and social lounge space
- Music practice rooms
- An office utilized by Honors faculty and advisors throughout the year for office hours to meet with students
- Wireless Internet
- Partnerships with various other Living-Learning communities within Gateway Hall
Gateway Hall is currently under construction on College Hill. The featured architectural renderings can be viewed online. Please check back for more information on Gateway Hall coming soon!
Please note: Honors freshmen will be assigned to a room in Gateway 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.
