How do first year students get Honors housing?

Priority consideration will be given to students who submit their housing forms and deposit on time. To receive Honors housing, it is not enough to simply check off that housing is requested on your UMass Lowell admission application.

In order to be eligible for Honors housing students must:

Submit a housing contract, a housing application, and a $200 deposit on the Online Housing Gateway.

Assignments to the Freshmen Honors LLC floors are guaranteed to those who complete the above steps before May 1. After the May 1 deadline, assignments will be based on availability and honored on a first-come, first-serve basis.
