Living Learning Communities group standing and smiling.

Our living learning communities allow you to live and take classes with a group of students who share a common interest or academic major.

Why Living Learning Communities?

You’ll develop skills and connections that support your academic achievement, a better understanding of yourself and others, and a greater ability to balance your academic and social life. This eases your transition to college life and provides you with a group of peers and friends who become like a family away from home.

More than 25+ living learning communities are offered, grouped under the broad categories of:

  • Arts and expression
  • Business and management
  • Cultural exploration and diversity
  • Education
  • Leadership and citizenship
  • Science, technology, engineering and math
  • Global connections
  • Honors
  • Theme housing

How to Request a Living Learning Community

Indicate your living learning community choice(s) on the online Housing and Meal Plan Application. If you are interested in more than one, rank your choices to a maximum of three. If you are also making a mutual roommate request, each of you must make identical rankings. There is no additional housing cost associated with joining a living learning community.

Honors Students

If you have been invited to participate in the Renée Crown University Honors Program, you are encouraged to enroll in any living learning community. Honors students who do not select one of the other living learning communities will be automatically housed in proximity to other honors students in clusters collectively known as the Honors Learning Community.
