Lewis Hall is the current Honors living-learning community. For 2022-2023, Templin Residence Hall will be home to the Honors living-learning community. Honors students may choose to live in other residence halls, such as the Scholarship Halls. 

Templin Hall

Located on Daisy Hill, Templin Hall houses 280 students, almost all of them part of the Honors Program community. In Templin, you will enjoy a living environment that emphasizes academic achievement and faculty-student interaction. With study facilities and even classrooms located in the floor lobby, you will have all the resources you need for academic success. 

This Residence Hall consists of recently renovated two person rooms with baths and four person suites. The building is located right across the street from Nunemaker Center, home of the University Honors Program.

Scholarship Halls

Many honors students choose to live in the Scholarship Halls. Around 50 people live in each of the 12 Scholarship Halls. Students help with weekly duties, which reduces the cost of living. You will need to complete an additional application for the Scholarship Halls. More information can be found here.

Important housing dates*

November 1: Scholarship hall first decision date. 

March 1: Final deadline to submit scholarship hall materials for the fall semester.

*Students should apply for housing as soon as they are admitted to KU. The earlier you apply, the earlier your spring room selection date. Pay the $50 non-refundable application fee to hold your spot.
