We offer more than 30 Living Learning Communities (LLCs). An LLC is a group of students who share a common major or academic affiliation, live together in a residence hall, have intentional faculty support and engage in academic and social experiences on and off campus.

LLCs can range in size, with some as small as 10 students and others with over 200 students! Additionally, LLCs are arranged in the residence halls in a variety of ways. Based on their size, some LLCs fill an entire floor, or even multiple floors, while others may exist as a cluster of rooms on part of a floor. With all these options, it’s important to know your LLC floor could be all LLC students or a mixture of LLC and non-LLC students.

For more information about each individual LLC, please read the descriptions below.  For more general information about the LLC program, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.

What are residents saying about their Upperclass LGBTQ LLC experience?

"This is my second year in the LLC so a lot of my friends who decided to stay in and I have gotten really close. It’s made living in a dorm a good experience cause I know there’s always someone down the hallway I can talk to. I took QSX 111 last year for the LLC requirement and QSX 112 second semester. Both of these allowed me to do requirements for my degree while engaging with my other LLC friends to discuss queer identity in relation to the society we live in which has been a great experience" - Tommy DaSilva

The LLC helps take the pressure off of reaching out to and meeting people because you're all a part of the LLC and have events to go to." - Jett McKenney
