Campus Housing's Educational Advantage Heading link
We believe that a student’s learning process is ongoing and we work to create academic opportunities outside of the classroom. These opportunities are intentionally developed and part of the educational advantage students receive when they choose to live on-campus.
Living Learning Communities (LLC's)
Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are specialized living environments that connect students inside and outside-the-classroom experiences. Each LLC is unique, but all are centered on a distinctive theme or academic interest area. Students who choose to live in an LLC have a direct connection to their classroom experience, access to intentional events and programs, and dedicated staff members who work to make the community a unique opportunity for Campus Housing residents and their academic success.
The goal of the Faculty-in-Residence program is to provide both formal and informal resident-faculty interactions through educational programming, classes, individual and small-group advising, and casual association as part of an on-campus community within Campus Housing. These interactions provide students opportunities to approach and relate to faculty members on a more personal level, learn about resources, and enhance their confidence and ability to interact with all faculty members.
It is a unique experience that encourages a crucial link between students and faculty. Faculty-in-Residence work closely with Campus Housing’s Residence Life staff to create opportunities for interaction and learning in the living and learning environment of Campus Housing.

Campus Housing Learning Areas
Campus Housing facilitates a wide range of programs and events for residents. These programs not only allow our residents to develop a sense of community with their neighbors and classmates living on-campus, but also demonstrate the educational advantage to living on-campus. Beyond providing a social connection, our programs strive to contribute to our residents educational experience.
Our intentional programs and events will allow residents to:
- demonstrate skills that prepare them to live autonomously and productively as independent adults.
- develop substantial, healthy, and positive relationships with their peers, faculty, and staff.
- engage in meaningful dialogues that encourage students to reflect critically about their own beliefs, experiences, and identities, learn and understand the beliefs, experiences and identities of those around them, and articulate how their lived experiences contribute to the greater community.
- create job application materials and hone skills that prepare them for post-graduation success.
- exhibit pride in their communities by attending university events and being proactive in reporting community concerns.
- cultivate a network of academic support, develop their study skills, and interact with peers and faculty, to complement their in-class learning experience.
