Abstract

Campus housing has changed markedly in recent years, prompting questions about its impact and the benefits of living-learning communities (LLCs) in particular. Sponsored by an ACUHO-I research grant, we surveyed a diverse, multi-campus sample of residents to study the relationships between LLC participation, engagement, perceived gains in learning and development, and persistence. Results affirm LLCs promote engagement in expected ways, but also point to areas for improvement. Implications for practice will be discussed.
