UC San Diego is committed to creating more spaces where our diverse population of undergraduate students can connect with each other, with the university and with others within the community. Our Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) have been developed to strengthen learning by helping residents to connect academically and socially. The LLCs are each characterized by housing within the same residence location, shared co-curricular experiences, access to resources, and engaging in activities that reinforce common affinities such as aspects of culture.
