  • What our students say

    I loved living in this LLC this semester! It really helped me get involved around campus and meet new people!

    One of the main things I love about the LLC is that it exposes me to career opportunities in my field that I wouldn’t have known about otherwise!

What’s an LLC?

Living-Learning Communities, offered through University Housing, are a way to help first-year students develop a deeper connection to campus and their peers. Students all live in the same residence hall and take classes together. Through their LLC experience, students are able to engage with like-minded students and deepen their knowledge of their interests.

Make your freshman year amazing

Living-Learning Community residents benefit from the resources of a large university (world-renowned faculty, a variety of course offerings in more than one hundred departments and other academic programs, academic and cultural activities almost every night, and a large and diverse student body), while also enjoying the benefits of a small college (close contact with a small community of students, small class sizes, and regular interaction with university faculty and staff).
