The Honors College



Honors Floors

The Honors College has two floors in the dorms for students who wish to experience the traditional living environment of university life.  Currently, the Honors floors are in Downey Hall.  Students can request to live on the Honors floors by selecting the floors as a housing option in the Residence Life and Dining contract.  For more information about Downey Hall, click here

Information about the Residence and Life and Dining contract can be found here.


The Honors House

The Honors House is a special living option offered in a collaboration between the Honors College and Residence Life & Dining Services.

Located on the corner of Fraternity Row and 15th Street, the Tudor-style landmark was built in 1940. Recent extensive renovations include new bathrooms; new electrical, heating and plumbing; an elevator, new furnishings and more. On the main floor of the house there is a formal dining area and sitting room along with a 2.5 story great room and fireplace. Both double and single rooms are equipped with single beds that can be lofted or bunked, a desk with hutch and chair and a three-drawer wardrobe.  Honors students residing in the Honors House will have the option to purchase a 7-accesses per week Dining Plan or greater to be used within the Washakie Dining Center.

The Honors House has a full kitchen, game room, study areas, laundry facilities and plenty of common space.

The apply to to live in the Honors House, applicants must:

  • Be accepted into the Honors College
  • Complete the Residence Life and Dining Contract
  • Complete the Honors House Application (2019 contract: Click Here) with a statement of honors and achievements. THE APPLICATION PERIOD FOR THE HONORS HOUSE FALL 2019 IS CLOSED.

Students will be selected in late May or early June for the House.  Often times, a dorm room is assigned to students.  If you are selected to live in the House, we will work with Residence Life and Dining to move your contract to the Honors House instead of the dorm.
