Residential Based Learning Communities

Major-Based Living Learning Communities

Honors House

Honors Residential Communities are the residential living environments for IUPUI Honors College scholars who choose to live in on-campus housing.

First-Year Students

First-year scholars live in University Tower in double or triple rooms with attached bathrooms, air conditioning, and contemporary furnishings. The Tower features a traditional dining center, fitness center, lounge areas and resident computer lab. There is also an Honors Lounge for students residing in the Honors community. A student must be an incoming member of the IUPUI Honors College to be eligible for this community.


Sophomore, junior, and senior Honors students reside in the Riverwalk Apartments Honors House which is open to scholars after completing their first year. Each scholar in this community has a private bedroom within a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment. This Honors Residential Community has an Honors Lounge and a Community Room for studying and social or academic events.

Honors Housing Concil

An Honors Housing Council made up of Honors residents oversee residential activities and provide direction for the future growth and development of the Honors Community. The Honors College maintains an on-site office as well to provide academic advising, administrative assistance, and special program support for Honors House residents.

Each area has sophomore, junior, and senior Honors Scholars serving as resident assistants to provide mentoring, guidance, and support to residents in their living environment. Through intentional programming, honors advising, interaction with faculty and professional/graduate schools, and a strong sense of community, the Honors Residential Communities provide a distinct advantage to its scholars, both as residents and as learners.
