The Honors Residence Hall


The Honors Residence Hall at New Mexico State University is a living-learning facility located in the heart of the NMSU campus. The Honors Residence Hall is the focus of NMSU’s vibrant honors community. It is a place where honors students live among a community of excellent students with outstanding academic records, and who are interested in getting the most out of the academic opportunities offered to them at a large research institution. It is also a place for social and extracurricular academic activities.

The Honors Residence Hall is equipped with two electronic classrooms, where many introductory honors courses are taught. The honors faculty participate in residence hall programming and frequently attend residence hall floor meetings with students.  Honors Hall provides a stimulating living and learning environment for NMSU’s Crimson Scholars and honors students. The Honors Residence Hall is coeducational.
