Application Information for First-Year Living-Learning Communities

The faculty and staff for our first-year living-learning communities are looking for a diverse group of students for each program: athletes, international students, students who are undecided on a major, and students with a lot or with little experience with the topic are encouraged to apply.

First-year students apply to participate in a living-learning community through the housing application (available in BannerWeb). The application deadline is May 7, 2017.

Housing Accommodations

Disability Services works collaboratively with the Office of Residence Life and Housing to provide housing accommodations to students whose medical conditions or disabilities substantially limit their housing options. To be considered for such special housing, the student must submit a completed application for disability accommodations, with supporting documentation, to Disability Services.

In addition to filing an application for a disability accommodation and submitting the supporting documentation, students must meet all housing deposit deadlines.

First year and transfer students must submit the application for disability accommodations and supporting documentation by May 15

Gender Flexible Housing

First-year students who identify beyond the binary, including but not limited to genderqueer, gender questioning, or trans students, are encouraged to contact the Dean of Richmond or Westhampton College, or the Director of Common Ground, to ensure that the University is meeting their housing needs.
