What is a Living-Learning Village?

A Living-Learning Village (LLV) is a community of students who live together on campus, with similar academic, personal or lifestyle interests. These students live in the same section of a housing community to create deeper connections. Residents in LLVs have a more in-depth experience related to the major or theme for the LLV.

Who can live in a Living-Learning Village?

All students who apply to live on campus are eligible to apply to live in an LLV. There are some LLVs that are connected to a specific major or are only available to certain classifications (e.g., First-Year or Upper Class students). We offer a variety of LLVs to choose from and welcome students to apply who:

  • Want to build and participate in a welcoming community
  • Seek to get more out of their on-campus living experience
  • Desire to learn more about themselves and their peers
