Living Learning Communities

What is a Living Learning Community?

Living Learning Communities, also known as LLCs, are made up of a group of students who have a common interest or are part of the same Faculty, and who live together in campus housing. We currently offer six different LLCs that are housed in a variety of residence buildings.

LLCs aim to positively impact your first-year experience by fostering an immediate sense of community and belonging, supporting your academic engagement, and by encouraging personal growth and development. By participating in a Living Learning Community, you will have the opportunity to make friends who share a common interest, and be invited to events, workshops and networking opportunities related to your LLC.

If you are offered a room in an LLC, your choice of room will be limited to that LLC’s designated location.
