Campus walking past Honors College residence

Honors College students live together in University Heights North & South (first and second year students) or on a specially-designated floor of the Wellness Environment (first years only). In Honors College communities students learn together in their Honors College classes, grow together through advising and peer mentoring, and participate in courses and programming that enable them to find an academic work-life balance in college.

The Honors College works in close partnership with the Office of Residential Life to provide a room selection process that fosters a vibrant scholarly community for Honors sophomores, juniors and seniors. The 2018-2019 room selection process for returning students is detailed on the Residential Life website, and all Honors College students will follow the instructions from ResLife on selecting a learning community, choosing roommates, and picking a room for the following academic year.

The Honors College is pleased to provide its returning students with a variety of room styles to choose from. Students planning to return to the Honors community in University Heights can choose from a range of room styles including private singles, suite singles, private doubles, suite doubles, six-person suites, seven-person suites, and townhouse suites. Students select rooms through a lottery process that is run by ResLife.

Honors Private Room Selection for Returning Students

Returning Honors students interested in living in a private style room (including private singles and private doubles) will receive a lottery number and room signup instructions from ResLife in early March.  

Honors Suite Selection for Returning Students

As a residential college the Honors College is a place that fosters deep scholarly connections and friendships among students. For this reason suite-style rooms tend to be popular among returning Honors College students; they can be a unique style of living space that allows for students to live with several friends.

In order to ensure that returning students have ample time to consider roommate/suitemate options, while also ensuring that the demand for suites does not exceed the limited capacity for these styles of rooms, the Honors College runs a suite request system in early February. The Honors College suite request process requires students who would like to live in these suites to form a group and make a formal request for a suite through the process detailed below. If more groups request a certain style of space than there are spaces available, the Honors College will run a lottery in order to determine which groups will be permitted to select these spaces.

Honors Suite Selection Process for Returning Students

In early February there will be a group request process for each style of Honors suite:

  • A lottery for the 7- person suite, to be run from February 2-February-5
    • Groups will have from 8 a.m. on 2/2 to 8 a.m. on 2/5 to put in a request. 
    • Groups will be notified if they received a space by the end of the day on 2/5
  • A lottery for the 6-person suites, to be run from February 2-February-5
    • Groups will have from 8 a.m. on 2/2 to 8 a.m. on 2/5 to put in a request. 
    • Groups will be notified if they received a space by the end of the day on 2/5
  • A lottery for the triple/single townhouse suites, to be run from February 2-February-5
    • Groups will have from 8 a.m. on 2/2 to 8 a.m. on 2/5 to put in a request. 
    • Groups will be notified if they received a space by the end of the day on 2/5
  • A lottery for suite room styles accommodating four people, to be run from February 5-February 7
    • Groups will have from 8 a.m. on 2/5 to 8 a.m. on 2/7 to put in a request. Request form is here: https://goo.gl/forms/e5YGRA2NR83VNcPz2
    • Groups will be notified if they received a space by 2/8

Online request forms will be available for each style of space on this website, and groups wishing to participate in a suite selection will need to fill out the request form by the deadline listed. If a group receives the opportunity to select a suite, the group will be notified by the Honors College, and they will have until the deadlines listed below to update their roommate preferences in the housing and meal plan contract. After the deadline, the Honors College will forward the groups eligible for suite selection to ResLife, who will run a lottery among the groups for suite selection, in accordance with their policies and procedures.

The following is the timeline for the Honors suite selection:

Fall 2018 Housing & room selection process for incoming first-year students

All incoming first year Honors College students may live in Honors College Housing in University Heights North, or in WE-HCOL in Central Campus.

  • Admitted students can sign up for Honors learning communities by activating their NetID and following instructions at: https://www.uvm.edu/reslife/incoming_students
  • Learning community preferences can be edited up until May 1.
  • Students interested in living in Honors housing in University Heights North should preference Honors housing as their first preferred learning community.
  • Students interested in participating in the WE-HCOL Dual Citizenship program should preference "Wellness Environment" as their first preferred learning community, and "Honors" as their second preferred learning community. Space is limited in WE-HCOL, and this ensures that students will be placed in an Honors learning community.

Room styles in Honors Housing

First-year students who choose to live in WE-HCOL at Central Campus will likely choose from traditional doubles (one room for two people, two beds, two dressers, two desks, etc., and a common bathroom down the hall). First-year students who choose to live in University Heights can choose from four room types: Private doubles (one room for two people; two beds two dressers, two desks, etc., and an attached bathroom); .Private triple (one room for three people: Three beds, three dressers, three desks, and an attached bathroom); Suite doubles (two double rooms connected by a small common space and a shared bathroom); Suite triples (two triple rooms connected by a small common space and a shared bathroom).Room rates are published by UVM's ResLife. 

The Honors College will do its best to accommodate all preferences, but cannot guarantee a student’s first choice for housing. Students will receive their room assignment and name of roommate in mid-August from UVM’s ResLife.
 
The Honors College will provide more information on housing for first year students during UVM’s June Orientation Sessions.

Housing & room selection for transfer Honors College students

Incoming Honors College students transferring from other institutions must fill out a housing request form located in myResLife. Students who are eligible for on-campus housing can request to live in University Heights North, and will be placed on a space-available basis. For more information on housing for transfer students, e-mail honors.college@uvm.edu.
