Honors Housing

Merrimack Honors housing is comprised of  two dedicated living learning communities.  Both offer honors-themed community activities and specially chosen honors RAs. Freshmen who reside on campus are expected to live in the Honors Living Learning Community in the north wing of Monican Centre, which offers four-person suites featuring two bedrooms, a common area and a bathroom.  The upperclassman Honors House is located in the newly constructed North Residential Village, featuring four-and six-person suites.  Learn more about the Honors Program at Merrimack College.
