What is a Living Learning Community?
A Living Learning Community (LLC) is a community built to connect residents with common interests and provide them with the opportunity to engage and attend specialized programming to fit those interests.
Why should I join a Living Learning Community?
Joining a Living Learning Community provides its members with opportunities to connect with others who have similar interests and goals to themselves. LLCs provide members the opportunity to attend specialized programming to meet with specific interest or focus.
How do I join a Living Learning Community?
As a first year student you can pick your LLC as part of your room selection process. If you chose not to select an LLC at that time, you can always go back to the Resident Portal and join an LLC via the Requests page.
Living/Learning Community options
- Emerging Leaders Community - A community focused on developing leadership skills through participation in leadership opportunities within the residential and UTEP communities.
- Intramural Sports Learning Community - A community focused on developing relationships with those who have an interest or focus on their physical wellbeing, whether they have just started their journey into physical wellness or have a well-established routine.
Where will Living Learning Community participants live on campus?
Living Learning Community members will live across any of the FYRE residence halls: Guadalupe, Sacramento, Copper, Whispering Springs. You get to pick your room assignment and your LLC of choice will not impact what you can see on the resident portal.
Does my roommate need to be in the same LLC for us to live together?
Each resident can choose their own LLC. Participants in a specific LLC will come together during specific programs for that LLC providing an additional community for everyone. People living together can choose to be part of the same LLC but are not required to.
How is a Living Learning Community different than standard housing on campus
Your LLC selection will not impact your housing. Students that chose not to participate in an LLC will live in the same buildings and will have access to all residential events. There will be special events/programs catered to the specific LLCs.
