Final Notes

Placement in the honors block is not guaranteed but is based on availability of space.  

The honors block is reserved for students in the honors program and your roommate will be another honors student. If all interested honors applicants have been assigned and there is space remaining in the honors block, other housing applicants may be assigned to this space.  

Requesting a roommate: on the interest form, you can name a preferred roommate. If that person is also an honors student and has submitted an interest form, you can be assigned together. If your preferred roommate is not in the honors program, they can only be assigned if there is space in the honors block. Your preferred roommate must submit a housing application and the date of their application should closely match yours. Assignment into preferred buildings is based on date of application and available space within the building.

Length of assignment is a full academic year. Honors students who do not wish to live in the honors block canalways choose other residence hall options and request a preferred roommate. It is your choice.
