Honors Village

Honors Village Front


The Honors Village is a living and learning community that will elevate every aspect of your W.A. Franke Honors College education, whether you live in it or not. If you are interested in living in the Honors Village, all housing applications are handled through Housing and Residence Life. 


With it's own dining hall, digital maker space, courtyard, study areas, and classrooms, the Honors Village is so much more than just a dorm. All Franke Honors students are encouraged to make it their home during their time here, even if it's not where they live. 

The Honors Village is also home to the Honors College Offices, where students can easily find their advisors, faculty, and staff.
