Living-Learning Communities


At ETSU, we want you to succeed both in and out of the classroom and to become an active member of the campus community. Our intentionally designed living-learning communities give you a chance to live together with students who share common interests and passions and take your experience living on campus to another level!

Members of the faculty and staff, in partnership with student leaders designated for each community, develop experiences that bring the students in the community together.

Why participate in a living-learning community?

  • Make friendships that can last a lifetime
  • Enhance your leadership and collaborative skills
  • Connect with faculty and staff members who share an interest or passion
  • Get the most out of living on campus!

Residential learning communities have been shown through testing and research to be beneficial to college students and help students succeed. Join us and get started on the right foot at ETSU!
