The Honors Special Interest Housing option was created in response to strong interest among our honors students. Our intention is to nurture this partnership between the Honors Program and Residence Life, and to meet the academic and social needs of our honors students by following best practices while seeking programmatic ideas from our students as well.
Honors housing is located Neihardt Hall. The primary benefits of our honors housing are its dynamic community, its academically focused environment, and the opportunity to live with peers and resident assistants who are engaged in similar academic pursuits.
