The residential community is a key component of the Barrett experience. Honors students live in the Barrett residential college for their first two years and many choose to live on campus all four years.
The Mercado on Fifth and Van Buren streets in downtown Phoenix is home to the Barrett Suite, which is open to all Barrett students. The Barrett Suite includes classrooms, a computer lab, access to free printing of academic materials and a lounge for socializing and studying.
Benefits of living with Barrett include:
- Proximity to faculty and staff, whose offices are within the community
- Connections with other honors students in a variety of majors and from a wide range of backgrounds
- Easy access to programs and events that enhance your experience
- Ability to fully immerse yourself in the Barrett community
