Living Learning Communities

Monroe St.

Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are based on the model of the residential college, where faculty support student-to-student engagement in campus housing based on an academic curriculum. Living Learning Community students create and implement their own programs, events, and informal learning opportunities around the house theme under the advisement of their faculty sponsor (who does not live in the house) and with the support of the Office of Residence Life staff. All students and faculty participating in Living Learning Communities self-select into the process.

Participating in a Living-Learning Community provides a unique opportunity for intellectual exploration and community leadership as students create their own learning opportunities around the house theme.  Additionally, residing in a 3 person, off-campus house promotes independence and autonomy as students assume responsibility for more elements of their day-to-day living arrangements.

To apply for membership in an LLC, see the room selection  website.
