University Housing


Students study in the Honors Program office

Honors is a Living-Learning community that offers students the opportunity to successfully balance the requirements of academia and a healthy social life.

Honors occupies one to two floors of Whitney served by engaged Resident Advisors. In cooperation with honors faculty, residents are assured a quiet academic environment balanced with numerous social activities – such as movie nights and community dinners – all in the aim of achieving a holistic academic experience at California State University, Chico.

Space is limited and the Honors in General Education Program application must be completed before being considered for the Honors Community. 

Due to Covid-19 and subsequent occupancy limitations, TLC programs will remain in abeyance for 2020-2021.  These communities will be available to students who share similar interests but formal programming and learning outcomes will not be established until Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted.
