When you join a Learning Community you move into an environment where friendships are natural and campus more quickly feels like home.
Living with individuals who share your same interests, you enjoy unique resources and opportunities that help you succeed in your personal, professional and academic lives.
*Non-residential communities receive the great benefits of belonging to a Learning Community but the community currently doesn't have a block of rooms inside a residence hall available to students to live in.

There are two different housing selection process that takes place for Learning Community rooms. The two different processes are based on whether a student has been accepted before or after the Learning Community housing selection process has started.
Students who have been accepted into a Learning Community and made their $200 Initial Housing Payment, will receive an email with their housing selection day and time by noon, on Monday, March 5.
- Honors LC members who paid before Dec. 31 will be able to select their space starting at 2 p.m.
- Honors LC members who paid after Dec. 31 will be able to select their space starting at 3 p.m.
- LCs that allow roommate pull-ins will be able to select their space starting at 3 p.m.
- LCs that don’t allow roommate pull-ins will be able to select their space starting at 4 p.m.
The housing selection times are going to be based on the community a student is a member of. For example: all of the Arts Village rooms will open at the same time. Students will only be able to select rooms in the block that is assigned to the community. Meaning, even if a hall has multiple learning communities in it, the only rooms a student can select are ones that are available to their community.
Helpful Tip: Some communities allow roommate pull-ins, meaning you can choose to live with someone from the community or choose a roommate outside of the community. If the community doesn't, you must select a roommate who is a member of the community.
Students who are accepted after the Learning Community Housing Selection Process starts, will follow the below process:
- The student will receive a housing selection time 24-hours after they have been accepted into the community, as long as they have paid the $200 initial housing payment.
Please note: If they are accepted on a Friday, they will receive their email the following Monday.
