Living Learning Communities

Living as part of a community is one of the most enjoyable and beneficial parts of residential campus living. All Living Learning Communities are co-ed. First year and returning students are eligible for a variety of Living Learning Communities.

Students who wish to live in a specific community are encouraged to submit their residence hall contract with community preferences as soon as possible because these spaces are assigned based on the date the student signed their housing contract.
