Live in Upperclass Honors Housing in District!

Sign up now and bypass the housing lottery! You’ll be glad you did.

Living in Honors housing as a sophomore, junior, or senior is a great way to lock down your housing and roommates early, bask in the glow of other Honors students, secure a spot in a great residence hall, and avoid the potential hazards of living on a floor full of randos.

For the 2019-2020 academic year, we are pleased to offer the entire 9th floor in District House! Please note that different residence halls have different prices, you can find a list for housing rates here. Only sign up for housing with the UHP if you actually intend to live there.

The 9th floor of district has  Studio Doubles and Two Bedroom Quads. Studio doubles are efficiency-style with a kitchen and bathroom. Two bedroom quads are two doubles with a shared kitchen, common space, and bathroom. See the floor plans here.

Please note, the upperclass Honors housing community is an established Academic Residential Community (ARC). You do not need to apply for Affinity Housing to live in this community.

Applying for the Honors housing community requires 4 steps:

  1. Fill out the upperclass Honors Housing application by Friday, February 22.
    Through this Google Doc, you can request desired roommates, either for the doubles or the quads. All roommates must be members of the Honors Program, and each roommate must fill this form out separately – no one can be signed up by proxy. UHPers can also sign up for housing individually and then be placed in a studio or quad with other students that applied individually.
  2. Confirm roommate assignment via email.
    Applicants will be contacted by an Honors Program Manager by email to confirm roommate assignment.
  3. Receive email from GW Housing.
    GW Housing will reach out to you with instructions to complete the housing lottery, the date you will be able to sign up, and your RMS number for the application.

Complete the general housing application.
Once you have received your email from GW Housing, access GW Housing e-Services to complete the self check-in process.
