Housing for the Honors Program
As an Honors student, you have the option of living in the Honors Residential Community in Edens Hall. Check out this beautiful building with the Virtual Tour of Edens Hall. Living with other Honors students in this community on campus:
- Fosters a strong sense of community.
- Provides a network of peers who have shared experiences both in the hall and in the classroom.
- Offers students unique opportunities for programs including community service, resume/cover letter workshops, and special access to campus programs (like visiting authors).
- Connects students with leadership opportunities both in the hall council and on the floor.
Edens Hall consists of four floors and is home to 158 residents. The hall is part of the larger Edens-Higginson Community, consisting of Edens Hall, Edens North and Higginson. Edens Hall offers double and triple rooms entered from interior corridors. Edens is suite-style which means each bathroom connects two (same gender) rooms together. Edens is elevator and wheelchair accessible.
