Where is Honors Housing Located?

Honors Housing has reserved spaces in the newly renovated South Quad: Frederick, Taylor, Hunt, and Bush.  Single-gender and substance-free housing options are available in Frederick House.  We plan to make Bush House (5th and 6th floors) our reserved space for returning Honors students (i.e. sophomores, juniors, and seniors), although we have also made selected singles in other houses available to returners.  Returning students who follow the procedures outlined below will have the opportunity to select one of these reserved rooms, subject to the terms of the Housing registration process.  Only students who are currently members of the Honors Program and in good standing are eligible for Honors Housing.  We are not able to grant exceptions to this policy. Note: New room configurations in South Quad have restricted the number of triples and quads - there are few available. Students hoping to sign up for a triple or quad should make backup plans in case they are not available.  This MStudent Life icon will link you to the website page. Housing is a component of this group.)

What are the Benefits of Honors Housing?

Honors Housing offers the opportunity for additional contact with your Honors classmates, as well as additional social and educational opportunities planned by the Honors Residential Advisors. A schedule is posted at the beginning of Fall semester, outlining HRA-scheduled events and programs.  Honors Housing highlights in recent years have included:

  • Honors Kickoff Photo Scavenger Hunt,
  • Explore Detroit Events (Tigers, Red Wings, North American Auto Show),
  • Explore Ann Arbor Events (Cider Mill & Farm, Roos Roast)
  • Annual Honors Charity Ball,
  • MLK Symposium,
  • Fisher Theater and Wharton Center Musicals (Book of Mormon, Miss Saigon, Billy Elliot),
  • Music events (University Musical Society, Ann Arbor Folk Festival).

All Honors students are welcome to participate in Honors Housing activities, no matter their place of residence. Students hear of events via HRA emails and our weekly newsletter, "This Week in Honors."
