Living on campus is about community
What are Living Learning Communities?
Why search for a study group, when you can live with your study group? LLCs bring together students with similar identities, values or needs. We also have faculty and staff who support your experience within the residence halls. A successful first year of college looks different for every student, and we offer programs to appeal to a diverse set of interests and structure them so students are given opportunities to adjust to UAF academically as well as socially. We also have LLCs for returning students to develop knowledge, passion, leadership.
What are the benefits of Living Learning Communities?
Students develop a strong friendship with fellow students while gaining a deeper connection to the university with the support of faculty and staff. Students can expect to participate in fun and educational in-house activities and events with Resident Assistants who are a live-in resource with the same field of study or interest.
Who is eligible to participate in Living Learning Communities?
There are both first year and continuing education living learning communities. Depending upon your field of study, year at UAF, or personal interest, there are options to select a variety of areas. There are limited spaces available though, and applicants will be accepted on a first come first serve basis, so make sure to reserve your spot early!
Brimah Vonjo Jr.: Student Success Coordinator
It is the first year for students to reside in living and learning communities here at UAF. And things are off to a fantastic start. Through the collaborative efforts of the campus partners and the residential life staff, students are now benefiting from an environment that helps them to unlock their full potential as individuals and intellectuals.
Our Residence Life Department is student-centered. As a result our goal is to offer a noteworthy eduction experience for our on-campus students. Our Living Learning Communities also provide students with the opportunity to live with like-minded individuals and form lasting friendships. Each Living Learning Community has a group of dedicated people that are focused on helping students have the best experience that they possibly can. These groups include campus partners, full-time professional staff members, resident assistants for each community, and myself. We offer a wide-range of experiences which are focused on a variety of topics including academic success, financial literacy, leadership, self-care and wellness.Learn more
