Kutztown University offers a variety of specialized housing options that are built to enhance academic and social learning of our students outside of the classroom.

What are Living Learning Communities?

Living Learning Communities (LLC's) are programs that give students a unique, inclusive residential learning experience that connects academic learning with residence life. Students enjoy all the usual advantages of living on-campus in a residence hall, with the added benefit of living among a group of students that shares academic goals, interests and majors. Typically all students living in the community share the same major and all live on the same floor or general area of one particular Residence Hall. Students in these communities also typically share a common academic course that is assigned to their LLC.

What are Special Interest Groups?

Special Interest Groups are programs that offer the same benefits and ideals that Living Learning Communities offer to our students. Students enjoy all the usual advantages of living on-campus in a residence hall, with the added benefit of living among a group of students that shares similar interests or characteristics. Students in these communities live on the same floor as others who share the common interest of the theme of the floor, but are not required to have that interest or topic as their academic major. The students in these communities are not required to share the same major, and do not typically have an academic course assigned to their program. KU offers FIG's (First Year Interest Groups) and general interest groups to ensure that the specific needs of each population of students are being met.
