Living Learning Communities

Most students living in the First Year Village will participate in a Living Learning Community (LLC), where students with similar academic or social interests live together and participate in activities tailored to their specific majors or interests. 

Find Your Living Learning Community

 

 Ground Floor & Public Spaces 

The main floor hosts a public classroom space where many LLC students will attend class and programs together, faculty offices for residence hall office hours, tv/gaming areas, study rooms with individual study pods, and a large community space. Three (3) sound-proof rooms are available for student reservation for music practice or recording.

 

 Lobby

The lobby provides public and residential access to the building. The residential entrance is locked and has a 24-hour security and information desk. Guests can enter the public classroom and music practice rooms through the main entrance lobby.

 

 Residential Commons 

The Residential Commons are located on the ground floor of the building. The commons are separated from the lobby so that access to the commons may be restricted to building residents or opened to non-residents during certain hours. The Residential Commons includes the following spaces: reception desk, package storage room, vertical circulation, staff offices, laundry, study rooms, and open community areas. 

 

 Outdoor Space

A large green space is planned behind Normal Hall that provides opportunities for student connection and special programming.
