UT Dallas student housing is among the best in the country for on campus living. We know that when you visit campus, you will be impressed with the privacy, social opportunities, and amenities that our residence halls offer our students. For more information and a virtual tour, please visit the University Commons website at (http://www.utdallas.edu/housing/uc/).
As a prospective honors student at UT Dallas, you have some choices to consider about your housing options. All of the student suites are the same size and layout, but you can choose to live in Living Learning Community or live in Honors Housing. Both choices offer advantages and we would encourage you to carefully consider your choice before applying.
Living Learning Communities bring together students of particular majors and career interests. These students live together on the same hall and take some of their first year classes together. LLC programming is extensive, both professionally and socially, and targeted generally to the academic and professional interests of the students. Space is limited and you can learn more about the LLC communities at http://www.utdallas.edu/livinglearning.
Honors Housing gives you the opportunity to live, study, and socialize with other Honors students. National Merit Scholars and Collegium V Honors Students are all eligible to live in the honors community. Rather than clustering students by major or career interest, honors housing brings together students with bright minds, who are pursuing academic excellence, and of course have a desire to have fun as well.
As an incoming Honors College freshmen, if you apply for on campus housing, you will automatically be placed in Honors Housing unless you indicate either that you would prefer to live in an LLC or would like to opt out of Honors Housing. Honors Housing is located in Residence Hall South (RHS on map below) which is conveniently located next to academic buildings. Whether you choose to live in an LLC, Honors Housing, or elsewhere, you will still be welcome to attend all Honors events that happen in Residence Hall South.
