Living Learning Communities provide built-in support system


Wichita State University offers students who live on campus the option to live in a Living Learning Community (LLC). This is a community where students with a common interest live on the same floor that includes college-based or interest-based floors. Currently, there are 10 floors but will potentially expand next year.

This housing option is designed and proven to build a support system. LLCs enhance students sense of community on campus by offering them unique opportunities. Students are supported by each other, professional staff and student staff. LLCs offer unique opportunities such as:

  • professional networking opportunities
  • leadership development
  • academic resources
  • industry tours
  • tutoring
  • lunches with faculty
  • social activities
  • building friendships
  • interactive programs and experiences

To apply for a Living Learning Community, list your community preference on your housing application. Students are placed in LLCs based on preference and availability.

In order for your Living Learning Community application to be officially submitted, you must agree to all program requirements of the Living Learning Community and pay a $60 annual membership fee. The membership fee covers LLC related events and initiatives throughout the year, in addition to a new StrengthsQuest leadership program.
