What is a Learning Community?
Living & Learning Communities at the University of Connecticut allow students with a similar major or interest to choose to live together in a residence hall. Students in each community are enrolled in a one-credit seminar course or course cluster together, and engage in other activities as a community outside of class. These activities include: social and cultural events; study groups; volunteer work in areas of interest to you; opportunities for internships; interacting one-on-one or in small groups with faculty, staff, peer mentors and guest speakers; field trips; and more.
Learning Communities offer a fun way for you to learn about, and adjust to, life at UConn — a very large and complex community — within a smaller, close-knit community. They place you on a path to make the most out of your time at UConn, and they create a rich and integrated university experience that will inspire you to become an engaged lifelong learner.
