Special interest housing is an opportunity for undergraduate students who share a common interest to live, learn, and grow together. There are signature residential learning experiences based on academics and thematic interests that help establish one-on-one relationships between faculty, staff, and students in a close-knit residence hall environment. More residence hall options are available to students who apply to and are accepted by special interest housing communities. In addition to any application required for special interest housing, students must also complete a housing application.


How to Apply to a Special Interest Community

  • If you are interested in a specific Living-Learning Community (LLC), you will find instructions on how to apply in the housing application in Artemis.
  • If you are interested in a Residential Community (RC), the Honors College, or a Themed Community, use the links provided to find their specific application requirements.
  • You will also need to complete a separate housing application in Artemis.
Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) are uniquely designed for first-year students and those in transition. At their core is a focus on: Academic Excellence, Diversity, Leadership, Service, and Wellness.
