McCoy Hall

The top two floors of the Theophilus Tower (10 and 11) are dedicated to first-year students in the Honors Program. These floors are known as McCoy Hall. The 10th floor is women-only, the 11th floor men-only.

McCoy Hall students live and learn together—sharing many of the same classes, forming study groups, attending events together and building lifelong friendships.

This hall serves as one of the strongest and most social of the residence hall options, while still allowing students to remain academically focused.

Theophilus Tower offers eleven gender specific floors with community restrooms. Each floor offers double rooms; all rooms include two twin beds, two vanity/dresser sets, two closets, two desks and two chairs. The building also includes entertainment lounges, study lounges and a computer lab.

Amenities include free laundry, free cable, free high-speed internet and a free mini-fridge and microwave in every room.

For more information, photos, floor plans and to apply, see Housing & Residence Life.

We strongly encourage all first-year honors students to consider living in McCoy hall.

“My biggest piece of advice to anyone in the Honors Program would be this: live in McCoy. You don't have many opportunities to live with people who are in your classes, just as motivated as you and just all around awesome.  I promise that the people on your floor will not be weird, you will find people who you absolutely love.”
