Honors Housing Moves to Newly-Built Cougar Village

The Honors College on-campus community has made its home in the Quadrangle, in Law and Taub halls, for decades. To best serve our students, by offering them the newest and nicest housing available, we’re relocating the entire Honors housing community to the new Cougar Village, available for move-in this fall.

The Honors College housing in Cougar Village will encompass all six "neighborhoods" (neighborhoods are groups of 16 rooms, separated from the other rooms by a lounge or kitchenette) on the 6th floor as well as approximately two neighborhoods on the 5th floor. Some single rooms on the 7th floor are also available. These rooms are configured similarly to those in the Quad – two-room suites with a shared bathroom and moveable furniture. The suites and bathrooms are slightly larger than those in Taub (600 sq. ft. compared to Taub’s 565 sq. ft). Prices for Cougar Village are $550/month ($4950/academic year) for a double-occupancy room with utilities included.
