General Information

Before deciding to join a living-learning community, make sure that you are willing to make a commitment to being an active participant. The more you put into your living-learning community (and college!) experience, the more you'll get out of it.

Additionally, understand that students in LLCs are roommates with other students who are in the same LLC.  If your roommate of choice will not be in your LLC, you can't be roommates. If your roommate choice is more important than your participation in an LLC, that's okay! But please do not request to join an LLC.

The Process:

1. Thoroughly review the table below.

2. Submit your housing contract, housing pre-payment, and dining plan selection.

*If you have already submitted a housing contract and/or chosen a room, you may still join an LLC if you are willing to change your  assignment to an LLC hall/floor and if space is available. Contact us and we can assist you in making a change.)

3. After submitting your housing contract, complete the LLC Agreement. You must have submitted both a housing contract and an LLC agreement in order to be placed in an LLC.

4. Once we have received your LLC agreement, we will send you a letter detailing what comes next:

  • You may receive a letter asking you to meet additional requirements in order to join your LLC of choice. 
  • Depending on space availability, you may receive a letter notifying you that there is no room; or that we have placed you on a waiting list.
  • You may receive a letter welcoming you to your LLC.

5. We will be in contact with you throughout the months prior to New Student Orientation. Please check your e-mail frequently and respond as necessary. We're looking forward to meeting you!

The living-learning community room assignment process will correspond to the regular housing room assignments calendar.

LLC students are assigned to their LLC rooms on a rolling basis.

Room Assignments Calendar

Any contracts received after May 1, 2018 will be assigned to a room as available.
