Living Learning Communities
A wide variety of Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are available within University housing, including culturally focused houses, interest-based houses such as Biology House, and others. These communities offer a special opportunity for students to live and learn with other freshmen who share similar interests. Students who are interested in one of the Living Learning Communities are encouraged to apply online at z.umn.edu/LiveLearn as soon as possible but no later than March 1. Assignments in Living Learning Communities are based on the date the completed housing application-contract is received, space availability, and whether students meet program requirements.
The University of Minnesota Twin Cities has a variety of special academic programs where students are able to connect and grow with their peers in a variety of academic and professional development ways! Many of these programs do not require a separate application, meaning admitted students are automatically considered for these programs.
