Living At McMaster

Living Learning Communities

Our Living Learning Communities are a great way for students in residence to connect with others who share similar interests and continue your education outside the classroom.

When you complete your residence application online, you will have the option to apply to the LLC that you are most interested in. You are not guaranteed a space in an LLC and your application will be reviewed before/if a space is offered to you.

Please note that you may live in the building in which the Living Learning Community is hosted in for the Fall 2023/24 academic year if you choose to be a part of that LLC. During self-selection, rooms in the associated building will be indicated. If you choose another building and room apart from this, you forgo the LLC-specific room.

What is a Living Learning Community?

Live in the same building with others who like a lot of the same things that you do.

Supported by upper year Community Advisors, who are interested and experienced with the LLC theme.

Participate in exclusive activities and events that run throughout the academic year.
