What is a Living Learning Community?

Texas A&M University provides academic-centric, residential experiences commonly referred to as a Living Learning Program (LLP). Residents in our Living Learning Programs benefit from additional resources, support, and enhanced activities, centered around a specific focus to deepen their Aggie experience.

The philosophy underlying living learning programs is grounded in the belief that learning is an active and dynamic process that occurs both inside and outside the classroom. On-campus living spaces provide an ideal learning environment, as most students spend more collective hours in their dorm than any other location on campus, including the classroom.

"LLP" is an umbrella term for all the residential communities available on campus, including:

  • Academic Residential Experience Districts,
  • Academic Living Learning Communities,
  • Enhanced Living Learning Communities, and
  • Themed or Interest Group Housing.

These experiences are lived through becoming an active member of a unique transformative community, where students seeking similar academic goals or personal interests can live, learn, and grow together.
