2014-15 Living Learning Communities

Our list of available LLCs has been updated! Please visit to learn about what communities are being offered in 2014-2015. Living Learning Communities are a great way for residents to connect with other students who have similar interests. Students in LLCs live in the same area of their residence hall, and take a common class that is offered in that residence hall. LLCs work closely with faculty and student leaders to create opportunities to enhance their learning with hands-on activities outside the classroom.

You will have an opportunity to select an LLC for 2014-2015 as part of the University Housing Contract Process.

New Community Preferences

As 2014-2015 Contracts are being prepared for release, we wanted to let you know about some relatively new options. In addition to the traditional coed-by-floor assignments, University Housing will be offering two alternatives in 2014-2015: Inclusive Housing and Single-Gender Communities. For details on both, click here.

Intern Center Openings

Please note - Intern Center applications have a priority deadline of April 30, 2014, and a final deadline of May 20, 2014.

However, some exceptions to this policy exist. 

Still, until you make a request to be exempt from the policy, you will receive all the normal Housing contract process communications. To learn more about the exceptions to the Residency Policy, including our new Residency Policy Toolkit, check out
