The Timeless Living and Learning Community (LLC) is for students from any discipline who are passionate about themes related to research in health and ageing. Students will be connected to older adults living in the community and will build meaningful and lasting relationships with them. Gain new perspectives as you connect with peers exploring similar career paths and learn more about the commonalities and differences across generations.
Why Join the Timeless LLC?
Students who are a part of the Timeless Living Learning Community will have the opportunity to:
- Build meaningful connections with older adults living in the Hamilton community
- Learn from older adults, while also sharing their own unique skills and knowledge
- Explore commonalities and differences across generations
- Explore career options related to health and ageing
Each Living Learning Community offers a variety of activities and programs that make up key parts of the residence experience. We strongly encourage residents to take advantage of the many unique activities and events offered. Students can participate in as many or as few LLC events as they would like but the more events you participate in the more opportunities you will have to connect with fellow students and other members of the McMaster community.
Programs & Opportunities
Timeless LLC students will meet and develop meaningful bonds with local older adults through a variety of events and programming opportunities.

Activities may include tours, social events, and volunteer experiences at the university, as well as:
- One-on-one time to connect and bond with older adults
- Intergenerational knowledge and skills sharing
- Panel discussions and talks with professionals in the health and ageing field
