Themed Living Communities (TLCs) are cohorts of students intentionally brought together around a common purpose in order to make living oncampus a more rewarding adventure. By choosing to live on a residence hall floor with people who share your interests, lifestyle, or academic courses, students become friends and support each other both academically and socially.
All TLCs require a one-year contract and will be located in Buddig Hall for the 2013-2014 academic year. Click on the links below to learn more about to learn more about each community.

Please note that some University programs that are associated with residential Themed Living Communities have additional requirements for participation. Interested students must complete all required applications and/or prerequisites for both the Office of Residential Life and the associated program. Please review specific program websites for full information.
