Visit the Honors College



At this time, with an abundance of caution regarding the spread of COVID-19 the Cororavirus, we are canceling all upcoming Honors tours and Choice Days. We are working to deliver this content online.

Honors Choice Days

Honors College Choice Day. This day is designed for the newly accepted student to learn the most about the Honors College. The event is open, however, to any interested guest. The Honors Choice Day is the BEST way to determine if the Honors College at the UofU is a good fit for you.

You will participate in sessions covering an overview of Honors, Housing, Integrated Pathways, the student perspective and time with faculty and advisors. We’ll host this event at the Marriott Honors Community Building.

Note: as our new first year honors housing is under construction (set to open June 2020) we will not be able to offer tours. We will include virtual tours and housing related presentations within the plan of events for the day.

On campus parking is open and free during the weekends.

Spring Honors Information Sessions/Tours

Led by exemplary current honors students, the information session/tour is  an excellent option for a prospective student. Your tour guides will overview the Honors College and important dates and deadlines.  Tours meet at 4:30pm, in the lobby of the Marriott Honors Community Building.

Parking on campus, during weekdays, usually requires payment in the kiosk lots. The parking lot between the Huntsman Basketball Arena and the Marriott Honors Community is closed during the construction of the new residential hall building.There is a surface lot (lot 21) that is open to guests beginning at 4pm, each weekday, that we encourage you to use. You can find lot 21 on this map.

Should you schedule an Honors Tour, we also recommend scheduling a visit with the University Office of Admissions to see a full University of Utah presentation and receive a campus tour.
