Determining which Living Learning Community is best for you depends on several factors, including your class year, your interests, and/or your academic program. Acceptance into a Living Learning Community requires an application through your MyHousing and an automated assignment by our office.

Here are a few quick steps to discover more about specific learning communities and help you narrow down the options.

  • Find out more about the purpose and goals of each program.
  • Learn the lingo. Living Learning Communities refer to students living in our residence halls, learning communities are simply clusters of students involved in certain academic programs not affiliated with the Living Learning Community program.
  • Contact us! Call or email the Office of University Housing & Residential Life or the program of interest to learn more about these programs or with questions. You may also want to speak with one of our Peer Mentors. They are upper-class students that work with each of the communities.
  • Learn about the difference in signing up for a Living Learning Community and the regular housing selection process available to all students.
