Honors College Dorms

Hey so I was under the impression that every honors college student is guaranteed to live in the honors dorms but just found out there’s only 177 dorms available. Does this mean the dorms are given on a first come, first serve basis then?

It’s not guaranteed, but we were told that while they were expecting a freshman Honors class of about 300 this year, only some of them would live in the Honors College Dorms. Some choose to have a roommate and some commute. Also, this year some freshmen may choose instead to take a gap year due to the uncertainty about what’s going to happen in the fall. The advisor we talked to said that last year only a couple of students who wanted to live in the HC dorm didn’t get their first choice.
