Honors Housing: Pickerl Hall & Burford Hall

2018 Pickerl Hall Staff

Pickerl Hall and Burford Hall are the primary Honors residence halls for incoming Honors students. Honors students are not required to live in Honors housing; however, choosing to reside in an Honors living-learning community gives Honors students opportunities to develop friendships and form study groups with peers from all different majors in the Honors College. 

Benefits of living in Honors housing include:

  • Living with and around other Honors students
  • An Honors Resident Assistant (RA) lives on each floor
  • Private bathrooms
  • Central air conditioning
  • Quiet hours on each floor
  • Floor lounges for studying and hanging out
  • Programming space for Honors events
  • Close proximity to the Hulman Memorial Student Union, Dede Plaza and the ISU Fountain, and the Sycamore Dining Hall
  • A short walk from most classroom buildings

For more information, including floor plans, please visit the Residential Life website: Pickerl Hall  •  Burford Hall


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.
