Living-Learning Community Application

Living-learning communities (LLCs) offer a dedicated and distinctive themed living option to our residents. They maintain a genuine sense of community and are supported by programs, conversations and faculty interaction centered on the members' interests. All LLCs are carefully planned and supported by University Housing staff along with the members of the community. Since all the members share interest in their community’s theme, members can expect to build genuine relationships and lifelong friends.
Please note, roommates must apply for the same LLC and request each other as the preferred roommate in order to be placed together. In addition, it is important to note that LLC applications are separate from the Housing Application. Students must apply for housing before they can be accepted into one of the LLCs.
First year students should note the information below:

Freshman learning communities (FLCs) is a distinguished academic initiative through Undergraduate Studies that focuses on supporting first year students in their successful transition to college. Students enroll in a set of courses with a cohort of 20-25. FLCs group courses together based on a particular topic such as arts and humanities, sciences, etc.

Living-learning communities (LLCs) is an initiative through University Housing that provides students with a supportive learning experience. These communities focus on providing a common experience for students who live on campus and are not focused solely on first year students. LLCs attempt to connect students to an academic area, theme or interest. University Housing staff collaborate with other university resources and departments to develop programs and services appropriate to each LLC.

Students may join both a FLC and LLC. One is not dependent on the other. University Housing has several LLCs that complement several FLC topics. In these cases, students are encouraged to do both to further enhance their collegiate experience. To join a LLC, students have to live on campus.
