Living and Learning Community Options

Living and learning programs at UMBC connect students with a shared interest in culture, academics, or community service. Living Learning Communities (LLC) are programs that involve undergraduate students who live together in a residential community and participate in academic and extracurricular programming especially designed for them.  Living learning programs are sponsored by academic departments and programs and are housed in the residential community.

Benefits of Living-Learning Communities:

  • Students involved in an LLC at UMBC self-reported:
    • They were more satisfied with their overall academic experience on campus than students not involved in an LLC.*
    • They were more engaged and involved on campus than students not involved in an LLC.*
    • They interacted with more university faculty and staff members than students not involved in an LLC.*
    • They had a greater understand of diversity and multiculturalism than students not involved in an LLC.*

*This data was compiled through the annual Educational Benchmarking Incorporated (EBI) Resident Satisfaction Survey in November and December of 2014.
