Housing for Honors Students

 As an Honors student, you can choose to live in a residence hall with students who are also dedicated to the Honors community:

  • interact with faculty in a non-academic setting
  • build communities outside of the traditional class environment
  • carry a classroom discussion back to your residence hall room
  • make connections in your new academic and living environment

Although not required, in your first year in Honors, you can live in the Ernest Calderón Learning Community. 

Aspen Crossing 1

Centrally located, the Ernest Calderón Learning Community is one of the university's most recent residence hall featuring suite-style rooms, spacious kitchens, and luxurious lounges and study areas.  This 24-hour quiet hall also has two in-hall classrooms, Honors Academic Advising, and the Honors Writing Center and is a great place to begin (and continue!) your friendships with your Honors Program classmates. Calderón is centrally located, close to the library and just steps away to the University Union and all its wonderful dining options.

24-hour quiet note:  24-hour quiet doesn't mean you can't play music or you have to whisper.  It is really about creating a place where students respect each others' needs for quiet study and sleep.

What to do if you want to live in Calderon for next academic year?
