The Honors Community

Merrimack provides dedicated housing, community activities and specially chosen resident advisors for all residential students in the honors program. 

Benefits of Honors Housing

Honors students live in academically focused residences where they live and study together. Incoming first-year students live in an honors living-learning community; upperclassmen have the opportunity to live in honors residential suites.

Benefits include:

  • Living In community with other honors students.
  • Engaging in transformative learning experiences by living and studying with other highly motivated students.
  • Participating in experiential-learning opportunities, including special guest speakers, service opportunities and group outings.

All commuter students have access to the residence halls during normal college operation hours and have full access to honors activities occurring in the residence halls and other areas.
