Residential Learning Community (RLC)



A RLC is a group of students living on the same floor in a residence hall that share a common theme; such as career goals/ personal interests and/or academic major. This unique housing opportunity creates an environment that will help students succeed academically and build strong relationships outside of the classroom. The majority of the RLCs are linked to an academic course or major so students can continue their academic learning into the residence halls. Therefore students in some RLCs must register for the required course/major.
