Housing and Residence Life recognizes that college students learn both in and out of the classroom and actively collaborates with our academic partners and other student success partners to complement the classroom experience.
Through Living Learning Communities (LLCs), we offer students a dynamic residential experience consisting of specialized programming, interactions with Augusta University faculty and staff, and a supportive community that focuses on student success.
The LLCs provide students in specific majors or interest areas with outstanding out-of-class co-curricular and residential experiences which result in a learning-based peer group that affords participants with additional faculty/staff interaction and collaboration with students who share academic interests and career goals.
Students within the community are placed on a common floor with staff members who have been specially selected to work with the residential learning community. Additionally, faculty work together with the residence hall staff to use the facility as a setting for co-curricular and social programming based on the content of the community's major/interest area.
