About Living & Learning Communities

Living & Learning Communities (LLC)s are homes within a greater residential neighborhood of students, joined together for a common purpose.

Residents join a community based upon their interest in academic-affiliated disciplines, pre-professional programs, leadership development, interdisciplinary fields, or opportunities to assist in their transition to college. All LLCs share in their mission to advance student success. Our LLC success initiatives include engaging students with fellow residents in shared courses, connecting students with faculty, developing leadership capacity, and offering opportunities for undergraduate research aligned with our identity as a public research university. Each LLC is supported by a network of program coordinators and University Housing staff who serve the mission of their specific community.

LLCs are predominantly designed for first-year students, though some upper division options complement the overall LLC program. Several upper division students serve as peer mentors in residence among our LLC students. An Advisory Council composed of LLC Ambassadors, work alongside university staff to offer quality programs, which provide interdisciplinary intersections for the learning and social development ideal to advance student success.
