Living Learning Communities

Architecture students pose around a hand made boat.

At UB, you have the unique opportunity to live with like-minded students in our popular Living Learning Communities, typically located in our residence halls.

By living with other students who share your interests, you’ll make friends more easily, have study partners right next door, and get access to programs specifically designed around your goals.

Request to Live in a Living Learning Community

When you apply for official on-campus housing, you will be able to list your preference for these areas if you are eligible. Spaces in all specialty areas are limited, so we encourage you to apply early. Please note that there are additional eligibility requirements for some Living Learning Communities.

Better Academic Performance

Students who participate in residential learning communities perform better academically, thanks to the built-in support structure and peers who share their experiences.
