Office: 286 Nott Hall

The Honors College at The University of Alabama is the administrative home for the three University-wide honors programs. These offer the best and brightest students on campus a remarkable array of enriched curricular opportunities through which to hone their academic skills and develop their knowledge as fully as possible. One of the highest priorities of The University of Alabama is to empower its honors students to achieve to the peak of their potential and to be recognized for that achievement.

The Honors College works collaboratively with the schools and colleges in which the undergraduate majors, degrees, and faculty reside. Students need not limit their honors work to one program in the Honors College. Many students are members of two or more of the University-wide honors programs, and many members of those programs are also members of college and department honors programs and of the Blount Undergraduate Initiative in the College of Arts and Sciences.

The Honors College is located in Nott Hall. The facility includes administrative offices, a reception lounge, a large student lounge, three seminar rooms where UHP and IHP classes are taught, a high-tech classroom for CBHP seminars, and a computer lab. A small library of graduate and professional school catalogs, guides to graduate study, and our Handbook of Prestige Scholarships and Awards is also available. National daily newspapers, magazines, and other publications are available in the lounge for students who are looking for a place to relax and make productive use of their time during the day.

The Honors College's living-learning facilities are an important ingredient in the establishment and maintenance of a strong honors community, for they provide the place where honors students hold social and extracurricular intellectual activities and engage in mutual support. The honors residence halls are coeducational and feature two faculty in residence in addition to residential assistants. Honors students interested in living in honors housing should contact the Office of Housing and Residential Communities at (205) 348-6676.
