Our Facilities

The University Honors Program aims at providing a challenging experience for Honors students beyond the classroom.

Honors Lounge

The University Honors Program is located on the first floor of the J. Edgar and Louise S. Monroe Library.  In addition to the offices of the Director and Honors Assistant, conveniently situated in close proximity to the students, the Honors Suite includes the “Castle,” where our conference table is available for meetings, Quiz Bowl practice and homework; and the “Tower” lounge, designed for study, discussion and the occasional nap.  Both areas afford free access to the Honors printer, and are available to (and widely used by) Honors students during all library hours.

Honors Learning Community

First year Honors students have the privilege of living in the Honors community, staffed by two Resident Assistants who are both UHP members.  Students benefit not only from interaction with fellow Honors students, who are in many of the same first year Honors seminars and other courses, but from co-curricular programming ranging from social activities such as laser tag to community engagement projects to presentations led by guest speakers.  Although previously located on the 11th floor of Buddig Hall (the “XI” community), the increased number of Honors students necessitated a move in 2013 to the “Penthouse” on the 6th floor of Biever.
