Honors students are a diverse and interesting group, and living with peers engaged in rigorous academic pursuits across all disciplines enhances connection in and out of the academic arena. The Honors RLC offers the academically-gifted and intellectually curious a unique opportunity for immersion in a collaborative and supportive environment. Faculty in Residence provide opportunities for extra-curricular engagement, living alongside students and sharing their interests and support.
The Honors RLC is a collaboration between Housing and Residence Life and the Honors Program.

To enroll in the Honors Program, freshmen in the Fall semester must take either COLQ 1010, COLQ 1020, or one of the Honors sections of TIDB 1010. Any of these courses will satisfy the Freshman TIDES requirement.
First-year members of the Honors RLC live in Wall Residence Hall. Second-year residents live in Weatherhead Hall.
You may apply for the Honors RLC through the student housing application process. Your answers to some supplemental, RLC-specific questions will be evaluated by a committee. If you are accepted, you will be notified and be sent more information on the room selection and roommate process.
