The University of Washington Living-Learning Communities (LLC) program is a joint partnership between Student and Residential Life and the Center for University Studies and Programs (CUSP). Under the leadership of these units, the LLC program will seek out additional partners to create an engaging and intellectually rich experience for students living in campus housing that will extend student learning outside of the classroom and into the everyday lives of first year students. These theme based communities will integrate curricular and co-curricular experiences that will enhance the social and personal growth of residents.
Students will enjoy the usual perks of living in campus housing, but will also benefit from living with other students who share similar interests. Students will have a greater opportunity to get to know their faculty and develop a strong sense of community among their peers. LLC students will also be able to register for their Discovery Core classes prior to other students and will have access to specialized programs and activities. In addition, LLC students will have the additional academic support that comes with group study sessions.
