Living Learning Communities (LLCs) and Interest Communities (ICs), are communities in which students with common interests and goals are able to come together to live, learn, and share with one another their goals and passions in life. Students in LLCs or ICs enjoy the same amenities and features that other students enjoy, but they also maximize their on-campus living experience by being involved and active in smaller communities based on common majors or interests and fostering greater student-faculty-staff interaction that goes beyond the classroom!


Students that participate in LLCs or ICs are more involved, grow stronger friendships, are more successful in their transition to college, have higher GPAs, and graduate sooner that the national average! Other advantages include:

- Enhanced Leadership Opportunities
- Natural Study Groups
- Enhanced Faculty/Staff Interactions
- Internship/Shadowing Opportunities
- Involvement in the Community

LLCs and ICs, and their benefits, are available to all students at NO EXTRA COST!

LLC How to Sign UP

Signing up for an LLC or IC is EASY!

Once you know 100% sure you will be attending CSU, you will then fill out a housing application to live on campus. During the housing application, you will have the opportunity to select which of the LLCs or ICs you are interested in.

When signing up, be aware that some LLCs and ICs have certain requirements. Please select and look at each individual LLC and IC page above to see if you qualify for each specific one.

After applying, you will then be placed into a LLC or IC that you've chosen. If you select multiple, you will be contacted to see which community best fits you and your interests. To prevent any confusion, those that are place in an LLC or IC, will only be able to select a room in the specified location of that community.
