Living Learning Communities    

The Office of Residence Life works with TAMUG Faculty and Staff to implement Learning Communities (LCs) and Living Learning Communities (LLCs) to give students enriching academic experiences outside of the classroom. LCs and LLCs are designed to aid students in meeting their collegiate goals while enforcing the idea of community and personal connections among peers, Faculty, and Staff. LCs and LLCs have courses in which students enroll via HOWDY using the CLGV course code. CLGV courses do not carry tuition or course credit, but may carry a fee if the faculty host deems this to be necessary for field trips and guest speakers.

**Priority deadlines for most LCs and LLCs are late March/early April.  Apply today!**

Currently Offered LCs & LLCs:


Members of the A+ Living Learning Community are students committed to respect, learning & understanding for all students' identities.  Community engagement is a key factor of the LLC with guest speakers, movie nights, programs centered on inclusion & more.  This community offers gender inclusive housing options where students will be able to live in an environment in which they are most cmfortable, while providing a safe & inclusive experience for all community members.  Personal development & exploration is the purest goal of this program.  We seek to provide an environment where all students feel safe to live, learn & develop themselves.  If you are interested in exploring the Gender Inclusive A+ LLC, please submit your application; we will email you with further information.  Applications are accepted until housing assignments are made.

Pathways LC
The college journey is full of transitions, as students strive to become independent, educated adults. The process of leaving home and adjusting to a new phase of life can be challenging when you are facing it alone. This community is focused on building a sense of belonging through connections to peers and campus services. Participants will learn strategies for successfully navigating the transition to college, including the increased rigor of college coursework, managing one’s own schedule, and being strengths-focused. *Pathways does not have a common residential component at this time.
