Honors Residential Complex

The Honors/Orr Residential Complex

Honors Residence Hall

The new Honors/Orr Complex is the main residence hall for Honors students, and is located near the heart of campus. The new wing of the Honors Complex includes a six-story, 300-bed residence hall, and includes 120 doubles and 60 quasi-single rooms. It was completed in August, 2004. Each person in the new wing shares a bathroom with just one other person. The attached 120-bed Orr Residence Hall was recently refurbished, and includes two floors for women and one floor for men.  Beginning in Fall, 2011, the Complex is for first- and second-year students only.

The rooms are large, air-conditioned, and include hookups for high-speed internet and cable TV, although the entire complex is equipped for wireless. Most floors in the new wing include two study lounges and one social lounge. A sunny, cheery, laundry room is available to all students in the complex.

Living and Learning is becoming a reality as all the students in the complex have access to the new computer lab and the classrooms in the attached academic wing, which was completed in January, 2005. The main Honors administrative offices are on the first floor.
