Honors students are not required to live in Pickerl Hall or Burford Hall; however, choosing to reside in an Honors living-learning community gives Honors students opportunities to develop friendships, form study groups, and get involved at Indiana State University.
Honors Housing Eligibility
Honors housing is a very popular choice for both incoming and returning Honors students. Incoming students who are interested in living in Pickerl Hall or Burford Hall will increase their chances of being assigned a room in an Honors community if they apply to the Honors College early and complete their Residential Life housing applications in a timely manner. Only Honors students are eligible to live in Honors housing, so Honors students who request to live with non-Honors roommates will not be assigned rooms on an Honors floor. Due to high demand, it is still possible that an eligible student will not be assigned a room in Pickerl Hall or Burford Hall.
Residential Life handles all final housing assignments, including roommate requests and changes. For more information about Pickerl Hall, Burford Hall, or completing a housing application, please contact Residential Life at (812) 237-3993.
