As a new student, we invite you to participate in one of our residential learning communities. Learning Community members choose to live in the same residence hall and take several classes with their floor members. Read more about the benefits of learning communities!
Learning Community Options
We also offer substance-free communities. These environments support and nurture healthy lifestyle choices and encourage students to make wise decisions that will impact their academic, social and emotional well-being. While illegal drugs, smoking and underage drinking are prohibited in all residence halls, our Substance-Free Communities are offered to students who agree to ensure that no alcohol, illegal drugs, or tobacco products are allowed anywhere on the floor.
Students assigned to First-Year (FY) Communities have first-year students as roommates. FY Communities are offered in both East and West residential areas, and new students are automatically assigned to these spaces until they reach capacity. The majority of new students live in FY Communities. Students living in FY Communities relocate to other floors/halls their second year.
