How can I apply?
Upon successfully completing a Housing Contract and selecting an interest a Living-Learning Community preference, students will be able to complete the LLC application immediately following. Should a student not complete an application at this time, they may log into their MyAkron and access the application through the “Managing Your Housing” icon.
We select students who wish to engage themselves in the resources, programs, and opportunities our communities provide.
- Students interested in academically-focused communities must be majoring in a related discipline.
- Students are required to reside in the residence hall in which their LLC is located if selected to participate. Living-Learning Communities are located in Spicer and South Hall.
- Roommate preferences are permitted but both roommates must be in the same LLC.
When will I know if I've been accepted into an LLC?
We will begin reviewing applications mid-February and continue until each community is filled. Offers will be made via email to LLC participants. Check your email regularly for updates regarding your status. Students will be required to respond and accept LLC participation. After doing so, students will receive a follow up email to provide access to self-select from available bed spaces within the community.
Am I guaranteed a spot in an LLC?
By selecting an LLC interest in your housing contract and completing a LLC application, you are not guaranteed placement in a LLC. Completed LLC applications will be reviewed by the Coordinator of Living-Learning Communities and participation will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Selection will continue throughout early summer or until each community is filled, so be sure to apply as early as possible!
Can I be considered once a LLC is filled?
Students selected for Living-Learning Communities will be notified by the end of May. Alternate positions will be offered to communities after available spots are filled for future consideration.
