The Judy and Bobby Shackouls Honors College is an Honors Residential College. Honors freshmen may live anywhere on campus, but Griffis Hall is solely for Honors students. We do encourage our students to live in Griffis and Hurst Halls as they share our office, class, and meeting spaces.

Griffis and Hurst Halls provide the benefits of a dynamic social life and attention to academic excellence. Griffis is home to the Honors College’s main office. Both halls are located in the Zacharias Village - convenient to Sanderson Recreation Center, Mitchell Memorial Library, Colvard Student Union, dining, and academic buildings. Rooms in the Honors halls are modular (each has private baths). Special programming in the halls helps you to get to know your fellow students easily. Griffis and Hurst are also home to state-of-the-art classrooms.

*Housing Priority is primarily based on a student's date of application to Mississippi State AND/OR their participation in a Living-Learning Community.
