As a member of the Honors Program, students have a chance to live in the Honors Learning Community. First-year Honors students are expected to live in the learning community, unless they live at home in the Greater Mankato vicinity, or with their athletic teammates in another section of the dorms.  Learning communities allow students to live with people who share common interests, and help build friendships with floor activities and other events. The Honors Learning Community is located in the Preska residence community, on the first and second floors of I hall.

Preska I hall is located in the center of campus, and it is the dorm nearest to classroom buildings and the Memorial Library. Preska hall is a renovated living space, and as such has many updated features compared to other residence halls. The rooms are specifically listed as renovated double rooms. Each room comes with two lofted beds, two dressers, two desks, and two swivel chairs. Rooms also come with a small sink area and a closet for each student. Although rooms do not come equipped with televisions, refrigerators, or other additional pieces of furniture, there is plenty of room to add these finishing touches to your living space. Thanks to new heating and cooling systems each room is now also equipped with its own cooling and heating, so you never have to worry about being uncomfortable. These halls also have wireless internet so students can access the internet anywhere in the hall.

Students can also enjoy a community kitchen complete with a stove, oven, double sink, and microwave. The hall also has a laundry room with two sets of washers and driers. The laundry room is free to students, but students must supply their own detergent. There is also a student lounge where many students enjoy studying, doing floor activities, or simply hanging out with friends throughout the day. Renovated spaces have new paint and carpet as well, making the space a very modern and comfortable place to live.
