The Living Learning Program at the University of Kentucky recognizes that college students learn both in and out of the classroom. The Office of Residence Life has collaborated with our academic partners and other student success partners to complement the classroom experience.

Through Living Learning Communities and Residential Colleges we offer students an opportunity to live and learn together in an integrated academic residential environment. This dynamic residential experience will offer specialized programming, interactions with UK faculty and staff; and a supportive community that focuses on student success.

Students who accept an invitation to a Living Learning Program (LLP) will be expected to room with another student who is part of that same program. If a student wants to live with a particular roommate, that roommate must also have accepted an invitation to the same LLP and each student must have requested each other as a roommate. It is very important to the success of the LLP that students live with other students who are involved in the same experiences, classes, and activities.
