Honors College and Residences

The Honors College and Residences (HCR) opened in 2016 and has the capacity to house approximately 800 students. Through a partnership with the Purdue Honors College, this residence hall integrates planned academic space to make on-campus living and learning a more seamless experience. The Honors College and Residences consists of two halls (North and South) and features "pod" style housing. This means there are a mix of single, double and triple rooms grouped in small clusters around a central bathroom and lounge area on each floor. 

You'll Belong To One of Five Houses

In order to connect students in the North and South buildings, you'll be assigned to a House based on your floor. The five houses are:

  • Copper House
  • Palladium House
  • Platinum House
  • Silver House
  • Titanium House

Each house will have a Faculty Honors Preceptor (FHP), who is a faculty member within the Honors College. You'll also have a Residence Hall Preceptor (RHP), who is a student that plans program to inform, educate and building relationships. The RHP is similar to a Resident Assistant and can assist you with personal and academic challenges that you may encounter.

Engagement and Mentorship

The Purdue Honors College has offices on the first floor, giving you more direct access to faculty and professional staff. The arrangement takes what is great about a learning community and applies it to an entire residential college, making it a place to live and learn alongside an entire community of students committed to the highest academic achievement. The opportunities for engagement and mentorship will help foster an academic atmosphere previously unavailable in a residential setting.
