Our Living Learning Program is intentionally designed to include high-impact practices centered on the interests of our students: majors and areas of study as well as career goals that blend rich experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. Residence Life has collaborated with our academic partners and other student success partners to complement the classroom experience.

What is the Living Learning Program (LLP)?

The University of Kentucky provides a residential academic experience commonly referred to as the Living Learning Program. The Living Learning Program is an umbrella term for all the communities within it, including Living Learning Communities and Residential Colleges. In all of these communities, students can live with other students who share like-minded interests or similar academic majors.

Students who accept an invitation to a Living Learning Program 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.

What are the benefits to a Living Learning Program?

Studies show that participation in an LLP can lead to:

  • Increased GPA

  • Successful and steady progress toward degree

  • An increased sense of community, even in a large university

  • Engagement with faculty, staff, and students

  • Participation in connected courses and academic experiences

In addition, students involved in the Living Learning Programs are retained at higher rates, are more engaged in university life, adjust more quickly to the academic demands of college, and have FUN while doing so.

All information found on the LLP website is focused on the Living Learning Communities for the 2023-2024 academic year. All current students should email with any questions.
