Newly admitted Honors students interested in getting a jump start on both research and college should consider applying for EUREKA!, the Honors College's five-week residential undergraduate research program. Application will be available beginning April 1.
You will be among the third group of students to have the opportunity to live and dine in the brand new Honors community at Core Campus—Clemson’s first residential college, located in the heart of campus. If you are interested in residing in the Honors Residential College, then select “Calhoun Honors College” on the Community Choice page when you sign up for Housing and Dining. Visit University Housing and Dining for more information. *It can take up to 2-3 business days for the Honors attribute to be linked to your account in Housing's system. Therefore, you may not be able to choose Calhoun Honors College until 2-3 business days following your Honors College acceptance notification. If you are still unable to choose Honors after 3 business days, please contact the Housing office at 864-656-2295.
New Honors students may apply to live in the Honors Residential College located in Core Campus. For applicants indicating a roommate or suitemate preference, that roommate or those suitemates must ALSO be admitted to Honors. Space is limited and Honors students are not guaranteed a spot in Honors housing. Assignment priority is based on date of submission of the undergraduate admission application to Clemson University, not the Honors College application.
To indicate your preference to live in the Honors Residential College:
If you have questions about the Housing application, call the Housing office Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., at 864-656-2295. The Honors College does NOT have access to the Housing application, and will refer any questions you may have about Housing to the Housing office.
