First-Year Honors Housing

All first-year Honors students are placed in an Honors First-Year Residential Community (Buckley/Shippee residential area at UConn Storrs or the 2nd floor of 900 Washington at UConn Stamford). At this time, Honors housing is not available at the Hartford Campus.

Things to Keep in Mind for First-Year Housing

  • Housing is managed by the Department of Residential Life, not the Honors Program. Please pay close attention to Residential Life communications, processes, and deadlines.
  • If you plan to live on campus, you must apply for housing.
  • After you apply for housing, Honors will work with Residential Life to assign you to the Honors First-Year Residential Community on your campus. You won’t need to fill out another application.
  • If you have specific concerns, requests for medical accommodations, or need to request an exemption (examples of exemptions include students that are student-athletes, commuters, or request gender-inclusive housing), please email
