Learning Communities

A place to belong

What are your goals for your time at IU? Living on campus isn’t just about housing—it’s about the whole college experience. Learning communities connect you to a ready-made group of peers and mentors who share your interests and broaden your life on campus.

Learning communities come in two forms that offer unique opportunities for anyone interested in getting the most out of college. You can apply to a Living Learning Center (LLC) or request assignment to a thematic community on your housing application.


If you're worried about coming to a campus with lots of people, being in an LLC is a really good way to make it feel small... makes you feel more at home, makes it easier to make friends.
