Pickerl Hall Eligibility

Pickerl Hall is a very popular housing choice for both incoming and returning Honors students. Incoming students who are interested in living in Pickerl Hall will increase their chances of being assigned a room in the building if they apply to the University Honors Program early and complete their Residential Life housing applications in a timely manner. Only Honors students are eligible to live in the building, so Honors students who request to live with non-Honors roommates will not be assigned rooms in Pickerl Hall. Due to high demand, it is still possible that an eligible student will not be assigned a room in Pickerl Hall. Learn more about Pickerl Hall eligibility.
