Living-Learning Communities

Campus Living partners with constituencies across campus to enhance the experiences of residential students.  In Fall 2014, we launched a five-year mission to increase our academic connections and the quality of co-curricular learning opportunities in the residence halls, establishing Living-Learning Communities in place of themed housing. Today, we continue to make campus-wide connections that enhance and strengthen our Living-Learning Communities.

  • The Living-Learning initiative seeks to develop connections: within communities, across campus and to learning. We create a culture that aligns academic experiences with social and residential enrichment.
  • The Living-Learning initiate seeks to develop true partnerships between Campus Living, faculty, and staff. We pursue intersections between formal instruction, the community and the campus at large.
  • The Living-Learning initiative seeks to create an environment where students are able to establish relationships with faculty members beyond the classroom, have higher rates of persistence, engagement and academic success.

If you are a returning student interested in applying for one or more of the Living-Learning Communities (LLCs), the Priority Deadline is March 17, 2017.  If you are a newly admitted student starting at Lewis & Clark in Fall 2017, the Priority Deadline for applications is May 1, 2017.  Applications received after the listed deadlines may be considered, but preference is given to those who met the deadline. 

To apply, click on the link below to learn more about the LLC and complete the application.  If you have never lived in one of our LLCs, or are applying for a different LLC than the one in which you currently live, be sure to select the application for new students. If you are a current student applying to live in the same LLC where you currently reside, please fill out the LLC reflection application for continuing students. Be sure to fill out the form in its entirety.

If you are applying for more than one LLC, simply fill out the corresponding application for each LLC to which you are applying.
