One way to deepen your engagement in Housing at the U is through a variety of special living options. These options can be broken down into two major categories: Living Learning Communities (LLCs) and Themed Communities (TCs). Each type of special living option is designed to bring students with similar interests, majors, goals, and experiences together. When living in an LLC or a TC, students participate in activities associated with the theme.
Living Learning Communities have a common course with other members of the community. Living Learning Community courses often help residents complete their general education requirements, make progress on their honors degree or choice of major.
Theme Communities do not have a required course.
Being involved in an LLC or TC also has some added benefits. Students who have been involved in LLCs and TCs:
- Have higher GPAs than students who do not live in an LLC or TC
- Have increased engagement with faculty and staff at the University of Utah
- Find friends who share their interests faster than students who do not live in an LLC or TC
