For their first year, all Honors College students must live in the Honors College community with dedicated resident assistants (RAs) and mentors in residence. First-year residence is required in the Honors College community regardless of a student's school of enrollment or field of study.
Following their first year, Honors College students have the opportunity to move into special honors cohort housing on the five campuses in New Brunswick and Piscataway: College Avenue, Busch, Livingston, Douglass, and G.H. Cook. This arrangement allows students to remain with a cohort of honors students drawn from the Honors College and the other school-based honors programs for the remainder of their time on campus. Typically, students choose to move to the campus where the majority of their major coursework is based, but they can also live in any campus honors community of their choosing.
Honors College students may also move into traditional nonhonors housing or off-campus housing after their first year.
