University Housing offers students the opportunity to shape their living experience by participating in one of our Residential Learning Communities (RLCs). These communities are a unique way for students to live with others who may have a similar major, are involved in the same campus program, or who share an interest/identity.

Each of the communities has their own specialized programming, connections to campus partners, and requirements. Past RLC experiences have included Faculty Coffee Chats, field trips, common courses, study nights & course registration parties, RLC competitions, homecoming participation, community service experiences, and more! It’s a great way for incoming students to have a built-in support network from their first day on campus.

To learn more about each of our communities, their requirements, and how to apply, please view our 2021-2022 RLC Guidebook and/or by looking through the sections below. Additionally, you can click here to view a short video from from Erin McFerrin, our Assistant Director of Residential Learning and manager of the RLC program, discussing the benefits of living in an RLC.
