Residence Halls at Jupiter
The Honors College is a residential college. Students live in individual bedrooms in furnished suite-style residence halls and each bedroom has high-speed internet and cable television. Living on campus strengthens the Wilkes Honors College community and has been shown to support greater academic success.
Is everyone required to live on campus?
Living on campus is required of incoming freshmen for their first two years at the Honors College. Transfer students with a fully completed Associate of Arts degree or who have completed two years of college previously, which they pursued after high school, are not required to live on campus. Transfer students who have completed only one year of college are required to live on campus for one year. Spring transfer students who have completed only one semester of college are required to live on campus for three semesters. Students living on campus must be enrolled as a full-time, degree-seeking undergraduate. A resident may be required to depart University Housing if enrolled credit hours drop below full-time status, at the request of the Director of Housing or designee. Non-Honors College students who attend the Jupiter Campus can apply for housing if space is available.
Exceptions to the housing requirement are made for those students who are 24 years of age or older at the date of matriculation, or for those who are married, have dependent children, own a home prior to their date of matriculation, or have been honorably discharged from the US Military. Students who wish to be exempt must apply prior to the start of the academic year and need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
