Living-Learning Communities

Housing That's More Than Just Housing

A Living-Learning Community (LLC) offers a unique opportunity for students with common interests and/or identities to live together — connections that help guide students through their academic and social transitions. Some communities are connected specifically to colleges and/or majors; others are designed for students with a shared background.

While current Covid-19 occupancy limits make it impossible for all LLC participants to live on the same hall, UCR Housing and Residential Life will still be providing specialized programs and initiatives around our various LLC communities throughout the year.
