Aviation Learning Community

First- and second-year students majoring in aviation and/or in the Air Force ROTC program can live in the Aviation Learning Community. This community provides students in all specializations of the aviation major with the opportunity to socialize, live and study with others who share their interests and experiences. The Aviation Community also offers an atmosphere that is conducive to students' early morning flight times and the demanding nature of aviation course work.

About the Community

Aviation Learning Community students live in a diverse population in Kreischer Quadrangle along with other highly ambitious and motivated students who are members of other Learning Communities. Students work, live and hangout together to ease the transition to college life, while supporting each other throughout the Aviation program.

Residential Requirement

Students who are members of the Aviation Learning Community are not required to live within the community but it is an added benefit to the program. If you choose to live in the community, you can choose to room with someone who is in the aviation program -or- you can choose a roommate who is not a member.

McDonald Hall

Centrally located and steps away from the Bowen-Thompson Student Union and the Jerome Library, McDonald Hall is a traditional residence hall and houses classrooms and faculty/staff offices. Amenities include an art studio, music room, study area, computer lab, laundry on each floor and a full community kitchen.

How To Apply

Each community has a set of residence hall rooms specifically designated for them. To sign up for one of these rooms, you must apply, and be accepted into the community. To ensure your chance to live in the community, please complete the following steps:

  1. Complete your housing application
  2. Apply here and login with your BGSU username and password
  3. Click on Add a New Community Enrollment Request and choose your desired community and academic year/term

Please Note: Students can apply only for two communities on their own. If you want to apply to more than two communities, please contact the additional communities you are interested in so they can apply for you. If you have applied for two and change your mind, go into the system and withdraw yourself from the one(s) you are no longer interested in. This will open up a space for you again.

After you have submitted your request to join a community, you will receive an email from the community director approving your request. When it’s time for you to select your room in the next phase, you will be able to view and select rooms within the designated community space in the community’s residence hall. For example, if you choose to join the Chapman Learning Community, you will select a room in Kohl Hall.
