Join a Living-Learning Community

It’s one thing to read, study, and discuss an issue in class. It's another to join a community of students who live together in a residence hall, take a class, do research, travel off-campus, and become engaged in a topic on deeper level. Students engage in the community, have deep conversations, build friendships with a diverse group of students, and find mentors in dedicated faculty members.

Be a part of a Sophomore Scholars in Residence or living-learning community at the University of Richmond! Applications to participate in a community in 2017–18 are due February 1, 2017.

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