We are thrilled that the Honors House is now located in NIU's New Residence Hall Complex, which features 12-person “cluster-style” living! We hope you'll consider joining us there as you look at your housing options for next year.
The Honors House occupies 200 beds in the East Residential Hall, which sits closest to Annie Glidden Road. If you'd like to receive details on living in the new Honors House, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will happily follow up with more information.
The Honors House is a unique living-learning community that aims to enrich the lives of NIU students in the Honors Program. The Honors House provides students with a stimulating environment in which to live, study, relax, and have fun.
While Honors House residents may share a commitment to their academic pursuits, they come from a wide variety of backgrounds and their choice of study is just as diverse. The Honors House enjoys a unique atmosphere of respect and camaraderie. Many residents choose to return after their first year, and many other students request the Honors House after they have experienced the warm, inviting feel.
Special programming is offered each semester to enhance residents' opportunities to tap into valuable resources and allow them access to new experiences. Programming in the past has included trips into Chicago to Navy Pier, Shakespeare, Blue Man Group, Second City, Broadway in Chicago and the Shedd Aquarium. On-campus activities include the Honors House Floor Wars competition, discussions regarding career-related topics, performances by NIU Theatre and Dance, game nights and special dinners. Participating in community service and other university-wide events are also a vital part of the life of an Honors student.
