Living Learning Communities

Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are residential communities where students are able to share and deepen their passions through social, educational, and reflective activities. These communities support Georgetown University’s focus on active and collaborative learning by extending discussions beyond the classroom, creating new opportunities for students and faculty to interact, and promoting the value of experiences that occur in residential spaces. At Georgetown, for the 2023-2024 academic year we have six (6) active Living Learning Communities where students can explore themes of academic interests, service learning, social justice and inclusion, inter-faith, and others.

The following are the overarching goals for all Living Learning Communities at Georgetown. These goals are used to provide direction and purpose for the program as a whole:

  • Develop a sense of belonging among those participating in LLCs through intentional dialogue, informal interactions, and shared experiences.
  • Facilitate opportunities for students to deepen understanding, discover new passions, and make meaning of each community’s specific theme.
  • Provide a space for purposeful engagement amongst faculty/staff and students beyond the classroom.

Each living learning community has an application process that will be completed through Hoya Housing.  New and returning LLC applicants must complete their appropriate application to be considered a member of the LLC each year.

Frequently Asked Questions

We do not guarantee spaces and we don’t hold spaces. We advise our students to be engaged participants of the LLC and reapply to the community if that’s desired, and not reapply to the room. We do enjoy returner residents.

Every residential community offers single rooms. These rooms are assigned like every other residential space, based on students’ and occupancy needs. LLCs with single rooms are not exclusive to the LLCs.

Your future roommate can also apply to be a part of the LLC, however if they choose not to do so, then you will not have a choice to room with that individual. If you are both accepted to live in the community, you can request to live with one another. If your roommate choice is not accepted and you are and/or vise versa, then you will be able to choose a roommate who was accepted into the LLC or be placed randomly based on compatibility.

After being accepted into a LLC, students will have the opportunity to find a roommate through CHARMS from within a list of students who were also accepted into the same LLC. Those students who do not choose their own roommate will be assigned to live with another accepted student based on compatibility.

We believe that learning occurs within every residential community. The additional experience provided by a Living Learning Communities is to reside with a community that possesses a shared interest, and having the opportunity to further explore that interest through experiential and academic programming as well as collaboration between campus partners.
