First-year students live in one of our popular Living Learning Communities (LLCs), themed housing environments that connect students of similar academic and personal interests. LLCs are a great way to enrich your academic experience outside the classroom and to form long-lasting bonds with other students who share the same values and enjoy the same activities. After your first year, you are guaranteed university housing if you follow any application and deposit deadlines.

Which LLC is right for you? Take the quiz!
