Apply to a Learning Community

Application Process 

Both First-Year and Upper-Level students will be able to apply for their choice of Learning Community via the housing application in the StarRez Housing Portal Monday, December 13th, 2021 for the 2022-2023 academic year. However, since LCs are required for First-Year students and optional for Upper-Level students, the process is slightly different. 

 

First-Year Students 

When filling out the housing application in the StarRez Housing Portal, First-Year students will be brought to a page that lists information about every First-Year Learning Community offered for the 2022-2023 academic year. Students will select their top three preferences, understanding that if their top preference is full or if they do not meet the requirements (e.g. major/minor requirements), they will be placed in a subsequent choice. Students will then be directed to sign an agreement relating to Learning Communities and continue with the rest of the housing application. 

Timeline

  • The Spring 2022 Housing Application will be available in the Housing Portal beginning November 2nd, 2021.
  • The 2022-2023 Housing Application will be available in the Housing Portal beginning December 13th, 2021. 

 

Upper-Level Students 

When filling out the housing application in the StarRez Housing Portal, Upper-Level students will be brought to a page asking if they are interested in applying to be part of a Learning Community. If they select “yes,” they will be brought to a page listing information about every Upper-Level Community offered for the 2022-2023 academic year. Students will select one community and on the subsequent page, will answer a few short-answer questions about being a member of that community. Students will then be directed to sign an agreement relating to Learning Communities and continue with the rest of the housing application.
