Upper-Division Honors Housing

There are opportunities for some students to continue living with Honors peers beyond the first year, both at UConn Stamford and UConn Storrs. All of these communities support students both academically and socially.

UConn Stamford

Space in the Honors community on the 2nd floor of 900 Washington may be available for upper-division Honors students as well.

UConn Storrs

The upper-division Honors community is located in three buildings on the Storrs campus:

Snow Hall

Snow Hall is part of South Campus, along with two other residential buildings and Rome Commons, which contains a dining hall. Students enjoy living in South Campus for the picturesque campus views, close proximity to Storrs Center, and easy access to the center of campus.

A typical 4-person suite contains 2 bedrooms, a common room, and a bathroom. More information about room features and amenities.

New South Campus Hall

The New South Campus Residence Hall will be opening in Fall 2024. Like Snow, this residence hall will feature suite-style living and the benefits associated with the South Campus location. It will also include a dining hall.

Shippee Hall

One floor of Shippee will be available for students who wish to continue living in traditional doubles while maintaining connection to the Honors community. Shippee is located near Storrs Downtown and a short walk from the other Honors communities in South Campus.

Upper Division Housing Policies

  • You must be approved for on-campus housing before being considered for Honors housing.
  • You must meet all Housing application deadlines.
  • Space in upper-division Honors communities is limited, so placement is not guaranteed.
  • Remaining in Honors housing after your first year is not required.
  • As long as you are in Honors and eligible for on-campus housing, you will have the option to request Honors housing. Living in a non-Honors community for a year won't change that.

For UConn Storrs only:

  • To maximize space for Honors students in these communities, non-Honors roommates are not allowed.
  • You must indicate your preference of Upper-Division Honors Housing on your Housing application.
  • All three halls constitute a single "Upper-Division Honors Housing" Learning Community. By completing the Residential Community Acceptance Form, you commit to selecting a room in this community so long as space is available anywhere in the community at your selection pick time.
