Home Housing Options Living Learning & Theme Communities

Living Learning Communities (LLC)

Have a common course with other members of the community. LLC courses often help residents complete their general education requirements, make progress on their honors degree or choice of major.

Theme Communities (TC)

Do not have a required course. Some TC, such as Lassonde Studios, require a supplemental application. Make sure to get more information on the specific TC informational page.


Students involved in LLC and TC have some added benefits:

  • Higher GPAs than students who do not live in an LLC or TC
  • Increased engagement with faculty and staff at the University of Utah
  • Make friends who share their interests faster than students who do not live in an LLC or TC

How to apply?

Make sure to review details and eligibility requirements for each community, as some require a separate application. LLC/TC have earlier priority dates for the application, and if a student receives an offer for one or more LLC/TC communities, the student can only accept one offer.  Please see the application timeline for more details.
