Each year, approximately 30 percent of Honors College freshmen choose to live on campus, where they join a residential population of some 4,000 students. While this represents a small portion of the UH student body, it is larger than most liberal art colleges and makes for lively campus life.
One of the primary ways the Honors College builds community among its students is by sponsoring Honors residence halls. Honors students on campus enjoy reserved access to Honors communities in Cougar Village and in Taub hall. These rooms are equipped with phone lines, cable, and Internet connections.
Students planning to live on campus must apply through the Office of Residential Life and Housing. Questions can be directed to 713.743.6000 (toll-free at 800.247.7184).
When you apply, you should indicate in the Area Preference are that you wish to be placed in Honors housing in Cougar Village (freshmen) or Taub hall. Our Student Services office notifies the Housing staff of new student admissions to the Honors College on a weekly basis.
Incoming Honors students should apply for housing no later than April 1st. Applications are accepted and processed after that date, but students who apply after April 1st are assigned Honors housing on an as-available basis.
