Living Learning Program

The Living Learning Program, or LLP, is comprised of 17 different Learning Communities and Residential Colleges. These different communities support student success by placing students with similar interests into smaller communities in particular residence halls. Students receive special programming, interaction with UK faculty and staff, and a supportive community.

"The living learning program provides you with a wealth of opportunity. Mine has opened doors that I did not know existed."

-Lindsey Snider, Peer Mentor
