The University of Kentucky provides a residential academic experience commonly referred to as the Living Learning Program (LLP). LLPs offer students an opportunity to live with other students who share like-minded interests or similar academic majors.
LLPs are a great way for students to get connected to other students who are interested in the same things, and will mean they are living with students taking at least one course together. LLP students have special access to unique experiences and events, including off campus trips, service learning, and career exploration. In addition, it puts them in close proximity to faculty and instructors, as well as peer mentors who can assist them with their coursework and getting involved on campus.
LLP invitations are reviewed on a first come, first served basis. We encourage students to apply early for optimal considerations. The final deadline to apply for LLPs is May 20th, 2022.

At this time, we have 14 LLPs that span a wide array of interests, majors, and identities.
While all of our communities offer unique experiences tailored to their specific mission, it is important for you as an applicant to think about what you would like to get out of your experiences. You can review more about each community on their individual webpages at go.uky.edu/llps. From there you would want to rank your top three preferences on your housing application. If you have any questions, you can always reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
