Honors Housing

New Honors Housing Reservation Procedure for Students who will be Freshmen/First-Year Students in the Fall of 2018:

On October 16th, 2017, at 9 a.m., incoming first-year students will be allowed to pay their housing deposit and apply for a place in on-campus housing through the Louisiana Tech Housing Portal. At that time they will be given the opportunity to indicate a preference for Honors housing. In early 2018, Honors-eligible students who have indicated a desire to live in Honors housing will be given the opportunity to reserve a spot in the new Honors House for freshman Honors students with at least a 28 composite score on the ACT. Reservations for Honors housing will be prioritized based on the date of the student's housing application and deposit.

Once the housing reservation process begins for current students in March, some incoming freshmen will be given the opportunity to move in the Honors building in Park Place to fill the spots vacated by graduating Honors students. If these students have already been offered and accepted other on-campus housing, they will be allowed to change their housing assignments if they would like to do so.

Please direct questions regarding these procedures and the reservation process to the housing office.

 

If you're considering living in Honors housing, please note the following conditions:

  • Honors House will be for first-year students only, meaning that these students will have to move out at the end of the year. These students will, however, have priority claims on spots in the Honors building in Park Place for their second year and beyond. Because there will not be enough turnover to accommodate all first year students trying to move to Park Place in the second year, students with the highest overall GPA combined with the most completed Honors hours will be prioritized. Honors students who currently live in Park Place have the right of first refusal, and may remain in the rooms year-to-year as long as they meet the conditions below.
  • Maintain a cumulative GPA of at least a 3.3;
  • Take at least six hours of Honors credit a year or have finished the program;
  • Follow the rules set down in the Honors Housing contract they signed when they first occupied the room as well as the rules and regulations dictated by the housing office.

Students who do not meet these criteria will be informed that their places must be vacated for the following school year. The Honors Program is not responsible for finding these students new accommodations.
