Honors Housing

The first-year Honors living-learning community is an extension of the Honors classroom. In their first year, students live together in Anderson Hall. All first-year students at AU are housed on South Campus, so Honors students get the full first-year experience.

As a member of the Honors community, you'll be supported by Honors Program Associates (PA) who live on your floor and attend your Honors classes, as well as a Resident Assistant (RA). Your RAs and PAs provide the living-learning communities with special programming such as outdoor outings, study sessions, and game board nights. Participation in a living-learning community is a great way for Honors students to connect with ambitious and studious individuals dedicated to academics and a rich social life. Placement is through AU's Housing & Residence Life.
