Honors Residential Scholars Community

The Honors Residential Scholars Community is a living learning community that provides honors students the opportunity to share academic experiences, participate in social activities, and live with other honors students who share an interest in global issues and awareness. The community is open to qualified students of all academic majors who have been admitted to the Honors College at the University of Nevada, Reno. Special consideration is given to students coming from distant locations and/or hailing from underrepresented populations. Specifically designed residential learning communities are available to a limited number of Honors College students who live in the designated honors floor of the newest residential hall on campus, the Living-Learning Community, and pursue the same curriculum of studies.
