Student Resources

 The Honors Program has much more to offer students than just spectacular classes, faculty and staff. See some of the many “perks” of being an Honors student below.

Early Registration

Honors students are among the most active students on campus. They often carry the maximum number of credits, participate actively in the intellectual and artistic life of the University, pursue independent research, hold leadership positions on campus and are involved in many community groups and activities.

To enable them to maintain their high level of engagement and still pursue a rigorous course of academic study, the University has granted Honors students the privilege of Early Enrollment for classes if they meet certain requirements.


Honors Housing

The University of Rhode Island has housing designed specifically for Honors students in both Coddington Hall’s A Tower and Garrahy Hall’s 4th floor. For students interested in living with other Honors students please find the information on cost, eligibility requirements, and selection criteria for Honors Housing.
