Living Learning Communities (LLCs)

Benefits of Living in an LLC

Our Living and Learning Communities (LLCs) attract high-achieving students and provide specialized attention for an enriched educational experience. They offer a sense of community through programs, conversations, and faculty interaction centered on members’ interests.

  • Each community has a Faculty-in-Residence member, as well as support from Campus Housing professional and student staff who works within the Living Learning Community to aid you in having the best in and out-of-class experience. Staff also provide residents with faculty connections and engagement with outside offices (e.g., Academic Center for Excellence).
  • Study with others who are in the same academic program or have the same academic and personal interest as you.
  • Faculty-in-Residence who work closely together in partnership with our individual communities through academic programming and educational opportunities.
  • Programmatic event offers meaningful and experiential learning, including research opportunities, career planning and development, guest speakers, workshops, and high-impact programs in the city.
