Learning Communities

College is more than just computers and classrooms. It's about people and experiences. Become part of a intellectual community before you ever step foot on campus with Learning Communities at University Housing. By placing students with similar academic and social interests on the same floor of University Housing, you’ll more easily meet the T-Birds who will soon become lifelong friends.

In addition to surrounding yourself by peers of similar interests, students who live in Learning Communities gain special access to SUU professors and staff, exclusive programming and services, and invites to targeted social events, all at no additional cost.

Additionally, according to a national study of Living-Learning Programs (NSLLP, April 2010), students who live in learning communities are far more likely to succeed during their college years:

  • These students experience a smooth transition into their new environment.
  • They build, maintain and utilize important social networks.
  • Their relationships with professors and mentors are enhanced by an increased access to assistance.
  • And they are more likely to feel at home while away from home, perceiving their residence hall as academically and socially supportive.
