Be Part of a Community

A Community is a living-learning environment where students with similar interests, scholarships, or majors live on a dedicated floor in a residence hall. Students participate in programs that support their academic, social, and personal needs. Communities help to form strong friendships, build campus connections, and promote academic success. All students are encouraged to apply.

Select a community below to learn how to apply and any applicable requirements. Once your housing contract is signed through MyBLUE, room assignment confirmations of your selected Community will be sent via email beginning in May and will continue as space allows in the respective communities.

My Community has given me great friends who push me to be my best and pursue my dreams. I’m surrounded by people with similar interests and dreams. We’re in the same classes, study together frequently, and help each other with homework.
