Thematic Communities


Those who choose to live on campus have an opportunity to participate and live in a community where students share common residential experiences. Participating in a Thematic community will help with transitioning into college. If you decide to sign-up for a Thematic Learning Community, you are required to live in one of the designated floors, halls, or buildings.

There is limited amount of space per each community. Therefore, each community is on a first come first serve basis.

Do Residents have to live in a Thematic Community?

All students who live on campus have options when it comes to their living choice. A Thematic Community will allow one to get connected to their residential college. Housing and Residential Life recommends sign-up to live and participate in a community.   It is ultimately your choice if you desire to live in a community.
