Sophomore Honors Housing – Apply Now!

17 Jan


For the 2012-2013 academic year, we are pleased to offer the a group of doubles and triples in Munson Hall as our sophomore Honors housing community!

You may request desired roommates if you wish.  All roommates must be members of the Honors Program and each roommate must submit a separate form – no one can be signed up by proxy.  Those who apply for a triple will not be divided into doubles, but will be contacted if there are doubles available.

To apply: submit the sophomore Honors housing application, available right now online, by Wednesday, February 8 at 5pm.  Spots are limited, and housing assignments will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.  Those assigned to Honors housing will be notified via email by Thursday, February 9 and their names will be submitted to GW Housing Programs.

If you have any questions, please contact us at uhp@gwu.edu or 994-6816.
