Defining: Community

VCU and the Honors College offer many housing options for incoming students. Our dedicated 172-bed building, the Honors College Residence Hall, is the only nine-month building on campus to offer single-bed, single-bath rooms. Most Honors first-year students live in this hall, but we also have space for continuing students.

While Honors housing is not required for Honors College students, we strongly recommend students take advantage of this opportunity to begin campus life with Honors peers. This Honors housing is not guaranteed, however, but is reserved on a first come, first serve basis. We encourage students to apply early for these rooms.

Beyond our dedicated building, students can live on campus with or without roommates in 12-month, apartment-style residence halls with dedicated kitchens; traditional nine-month residence halls; and living and learning communities that integrate housing into a collaborative learning environment. All VCU residence halls provide dedicated community and study spaces, and round-the-clock security. After their first year, many Honors students choose to move off campus, where many options are just minutes away.
