Your on-campus living experience at St. Edward’s significantly contributes to your educational and personal growth. Many of our students join Living Learning Communities (LLCs), where community and learning extend beyond the classroom. 

In a Living Learning Community, you'll select your housing based on a common theme that you are interested in exploring throughout your freshman year. You’ll connect with a diverse group of students who share that same interest. These students will become your friends, your neighbors and your classmates. You’ll live in the same residence hall, take at least one course together and participate in theme-related discussions, special events and exclusive opportunities available only to students in your LLC.

For the 2018–2019 academic year, incoming freshmen can choose from five LLCs, including:

How To Apply

Students who plan to live on campus may sign up for an LLC after you’re accepted to St. Edward’s and have submitted your enrollment deposit. To sign up, you must select an LLC-labeled bed in the housing portal, available via Hillstart. For questions contact Vaughn Love at vlove [at] stedwards.edu.

If you commute to campus, may also join an LLC. You'll have access to the residence hall and activities shared by your fellow LLC members. Commuter students must fill out the Housing Exemption form, found in the housing portal in myHilltop, and then identify that you are interested in an LLC by emailing Vaughn Love at vlove [at] stedwards.edu.

Space is limited, and because LLCs are popular, they fill quickly. To ensure your space in an LLC, apply for housing as soon as possible. Priority applications are due April 17 (though some LLCs may fill earlier before then).
