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 Cougar Place. 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 section that you wish to be placed in Honors housing in Cougar Village (freshmen) or Cougar Place. Our Student Services office notifies the Housing staff of new student admissions to the Honors College on a weekly basis.
Incoming Honors students may begin to apply for housing on Dec 2. Applications are accepted and processed throughout the spring semester, but students who apply after the deadline are assigned Honors housing on an as-available basis.
