Honors House



Students interested in living in the University Honors House living-learning community must be accepted into the University Honors Program before Housing & Dining will grant access to the student to sign up for the Honors House.  Once accepted into the University Honors Program, the student may indicate his or her preference to live in the Honors House at any time before the housing decision deadline.

Due to high demand, it is recommended that students interested in living in the Honors House send in their decision to Housing & Dining as soon as possible. 

Apply for admission to the University Honors Program by filling out the application on our website.  Students with conditional acceptance to the University Honors Program may complete the Student Information Sheet which is mailed to them.  Students must also confirm their acceptance by completing a confirmation reply form which is mailed to them. Students that do not receive a confirmation reply form may contact the University Honors Program.

Application materials are accepted in person at our office in Campus Life Building 110, by mail, or fax 815-753-9507.         

Students who have not yet received information or have questions about submitting a housing contract and room selection may contact NIU Housing & Dining at 815-753-1525 or housingdining@niu.edu.
