What's a Living–Learning Community?

At Florida State, a Living–Learning Community (LLC) is a small group of students who live together, share an interest, and take one or two of their classes together — usually in a small classroom inside their residence hall. Designed primarily for first-year students, an LLC is a great place to plug into a supportive network of students and distinguished faculty as soon as you arrive at FSU.

If you're admitted to FSU as a First Time in College student, there's an LLC for you — regardless of your major, career goals, or accelerated credit earned in high school. Once you've submitted your Fall/Spring housing contract, consider applying for one or more LLCs. Selection is competitive and based on the quality of a brief LLC application. To learn more about each community and how to apply, explore the links on this page or contact University Housing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! Check out the three LLCs that offer courses and other opportunities of value to any first–time–in–college 'Nole: Bryan Hall; Global and Public Affairs; and Social Justice. Four LLCs with career– or major–specific themes are also available; look for those if you’re a music major, if you're exploring nursing or another health professions, or if you're a woman majoring in math, science or engineering. Visit each LLC's website to discover which ones call your name, then apply for as many as you like. Applicants who are invited to more than one LLC at a time and who accept promptly may accept the invitation of their choice.

Any incoming first–time–in–college student may apply to one or more LLCs.

No. LLC residents pay no more than non–LLC residents for the same hall and room type. The most common room type in all LLCs, as in most on–campus halls available to new students, is a suite–style double with shared bathroom; the cost of this room type is fully paid for students who have an active Florida Pre–Paid Dormitory account. As you plan for Fall and Spring costs, it may also help to note that four LLCs are housed in Bryan, Cawthon or Reynolds Halls, where all residents are required to purchase Fall–Spring meal plans.

In most LLCs, residents take one 1–credit–hour colloquium and one 3–hour course. In the colloquium, residents meet weekly to explore topics related to the LLC’s theme. The 3–credit–hour course is also theme–related and may fulfill a Liberal Studies requirement (courses required of all FSU students, regardless of major).

For the Music Living–Learning Community, selection is based on the student's audition to the FSU College of Music and on his or her GPA. For all other LLCs, selection is based on a brief online essay application.

How to Apply for a Living-Learning Community in 2017

  1. Submit a Fall/Spring housing contract as soon as possible.
  2. Submit a separate online LLC application by April 3. Apply for more than one LLC if you wish.
  3. Check your LLC application status online between April 19 and 22.
  4. If your LLC application status is Invited, accept online between April 19 and 22.

OR

If your status is Alternate, check it again weekly. Invitations not accepted by 11:59 p.m. EDT Saturday of the week they appear online may be withdrawn.

Housing Tip: Housing contract numbers have no impact on LLC selection. However, if you are not selected for any LLC, or if you choose to decline all LLC invitations, your Fall/Spring housing assignment will depend primarily on your housing contract number. For the best possible contract number, submit your Fall/Spring housing contract as early as possible.
