New Residence Hall

The Clark Honors College's Academic Residential Community (ARC) has a home in both the New Residence Hall  (Building B).  

Most first-year CHC students choose to live in the honors college ARC. However, you do not have to live in the ARC. Some honors college students choose instead to participate and live in one of the many other ARCs offered by the UO, or in the Carnegie Global Oregon First-Year Interest Group (FIG). Even if you don't live at New Residence Hall, you still are a member of the CHC ARC and can participate in all the honors college events that take place there.
