Honors Living-Learning Community

Honors LLC

About Honors LLC

Our newest community, Honors Living-Learning Community, is on Nugent Hall floors 3 and 4. Designed specifically for James Scholars and Campus Honors Program students, this community offers special interdisciplinary courses, allowing Honors LLC residents greater interaction with Honors faculty. Curricular and co-curricular aspects of the LLC will be designed around the LLC’s three pillars: Inquiry, Civic Engagement and Leadership. 

Selection Process

Current students may choose the Honors LLC during Housing Sign-Up.

New, incoming students may choose the Honors LLC if available spaces remain during new student Room Selection.

Important Notes:

  • Students in this community must be a James Scholar or part of the Campus Honors Program.
  • To enhance the interdisciplinary nature of this LLC, the community will be made of the following: 50% of spaces will go to students from the larger colleges (i.e., LAS, Engineering), and 50% of spaces will go to students from the smaller colleges (i.e., FAA, Applied Health Sciences).
  • The community will be made up of 50% returning students and 50% first-year students.
  • First-year Honors LLC students will take a one-credit-hour course. This course will introduce students to the Honors Living-Learning Community, their fellow Honors LLC students, and Honors programs at the University of Illinois.
  • Each student's college and honors status will be in our database— so when you are in the process of choosing a room, you will see any available Honors LLC rooms for which you qualify.
  • If you are a James Scholar or part of the Campus Honors Program but do not see any Honors LLC spaces available in our system, one of the following has likely occurred: we have filled all available spaces for your class type (returning student or first-year student), we have filled all available spaces for your college type (large or small), or the whole LLC has filled.
