Housing Living & Learning Communities

Housing Living

Campus residency provides the opportunity for a truly wholistic college experience. It combines a unique balance of freedom and responsibility for students (many leaving home for the first time) with the security of a comprehensive network of support services designed to help them achieve campus- and life success stories. In addition, University Housing offers an unrivaled foundation for lifelong friendships, study skills, sense of community, and treasured memories.

University Housing at SIU Carbondale provides many options for students, including different types of residential living, dining plans, involvement opportunities, care packages for visiting family, and more. In addition, University Housing also offers a wide range of Living Learning Communities, designed to maximize the college experience for students studying related disciplines for a more communal learning environment that reaches beyond the classroom.

Living Learning Communities

"Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are residence hall communities that bring college learning into the everyday lives of students. They offer students the chance to live with others who share common interests and to interact with SIUC faculty and staff.

"Students who participate in an LLC often have higher GPAs, more positive campus experiences and are more likely to graduate. Potential benefits include getting to know professors and classmates better‚ greater access to academic resources‚ and specialized programs right in your residence hall."
