Living Learning Communities (LLC) are based on students' interests. A group of 10-30 students with a common interest in the topic area will all be housed on the same floor in a residence hall. LLC students will live close enough to be able to connect with other LLC students but also have the opportunity to meet and interact with other students.
Students will then spend the year exploring the topic area, guided by the RIT faculty and staff that coordinate the LLC. LLC's will have organized activities that might include a class, guest lecturers, community service projects, outings to explore Rochester and many social events.

Please use the RIT Housing publication: A How-To Guide for Selecting Your Own Roommate & Room in the Residence Halls as a guide (from pages 1-6) to complete the process. Once you have completed your contract, profile, and optional roommate selection, the living learning community and Housing Operations staff will work together to place you in a room on the USP living learning community floor.
If you need assistance with the housing selection process, please do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
