How to Apply: Fall 2022

If you want to live on campus (Honors or otherwise), you must complete your Housing application through Residential Life.

All dates and processes on this page refer to Fall 2022 housing.

Returning students (Storrs)

McMahon or Snow Halls

The housing application will open on January 1, and applications are due on February 11.

On your application, select "Honors Upper Division Students (general honors housing for students who are not first year honors and are not requesting H2O)" from the Learning Community dropdown. Note that this is a single learning community for both McMahon and Snow.

Room and roommate selection pick times will begin the week of March 21. If there is no space in your desired building or floor, you will select another space in a designated Honors upper-division room. You may change rooms--including selecting a non-Honors community--during the room change process in early summer.

H2O House

The housing application will open on January 1, and applications are due on February 11.

On your application, select "“Honors To Opportunities/H2O (Honors sophomores only)" from the Learning Community dropdown. You will receive a supplementary application via email on February 14. That application will be due on February 20.

Acceptance notifications and instructions will start going out on February 28.

On March 7, students who are not accepted to H2O will be emailed to see whether they want to switch to the Honors Upper Division learning community (see McMahon or Snow, above) or general (non-Honors) housing selection.

Room and roommate selection pick times will begin the week of March 21.

Returning students (Stamford)

There may be an opportunity to continue to live on the 2nd floor of 900 Washington, in the Honors Residential Community, to continue to build community and form connections with Honors peers living on campus. Apply for Housing through the standard Residential Life process (Deadline of February 11th). If you apply and are then guaranteed housing, you will be notified and asked about your interest in living in the Honors Residential Community.

Incoming first-year students (Storrs)

You must apply for housing through the standard Residential Life process.

Do not apply for any other learning community. You will automatically be assigned to the Honors First-Year Residential Community.

Incoming first-year students (Stamford)

If you would like to live on campus, complete all portions of the housing application as soon as it is available from Residential Life. (At UConn Stamford, you can—and should—apply for housing before submitting your enrollment fee.)

No further action is needed. Any Honors student who receives campus housing will be placed in the Honors First-Year Residential Community.

Campus changing students

Honors students who are changing to the UConn Storrs or UConn Stamford campus will be able to apply to live in an upper-division Honors community on that campus.

Follow the "Returning Students" instructions for your destination campus, above.

The housing application deadline for campus changing students is March 4, except for H2O. This deadline applies to most upper-division Honors housing. If you are applying for the H2O Learning Community at UConn Storrs, you must apply by the returning student deadline of February 11.

Remember: You must also meet your campus deadlines for the campus change process. This is separate from housing.
