Residential Education

Living & Learning Communities (LLC) are residential communities that connect students with shared interests, passions or goals to form supportive networks and opportunities to develop in these areas. Students in these communities often develop meaningful friendships and make contributions to the residences or surrounding communities to facilitate and support learning outside of the classroom under specific themes. They are encouraged to develop new student initiatives, design their learning programs and activities, and invite other residents to join and learn together. Students who are interested to form an LLC with a theme related to any cultural or career interest, academic subject, social and community issues, etc, are welcome to contact the Residential Education team at This email address is being protected from spambots.
