New Honors Residential College

Opening Fall 2018 

The NAU Honors College is excited to announce a new Honors Residential College building for first-year Honors students  under construction at University Drive and Knoles Drive. The 204,656-square-foot state-of-the-art building is designed to be a place where Honors students will live, study, congregate and collaborate with others who are passionate about learning and creating. In addition to student rooms, the building will include eight state-of the-art classrooms, an Honors writing center, faculty offices, an Honors student support center, an exercise facility and more. First-year Honors students wishing to live on campus will live in this exciting new Honors Residential College.

“We are pleased to see an increasing number of top-performing students choose NAU, and programs like the Honors College play a major role in attracting and engaging these students,” NAU President Rita Cheng said. “This facility is an example of our commitment to make NAU home for the region’s best and brightest.”
