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.

I belong in the Health Science Community because everyone is kind, welcoming and shares a love for health sciences. I love walking to class and running into people that are involved in the same Community. It helps me realize how connected this campus is.
