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 to 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‘ve enjoyed getting to know the people in my Community; living on the same floor made it easy. We all have similar majors, so it’s nice to know others going down the same path as you. The Community really helped me find friends when I first got on campus.
