Apply for a Living and Learning Village
Learning takes place not only in the classroom, but outside it as well. In partnership with several academic departments, University Housing provides Living and Learning Villages that let you pursue your academic and personal goals in close collaboration with mentors, professors and others who share the same interests.

Incoming New Students
If you are interested in applying to live in one of the Living and Learning Villages, you must first complete a Housing Application for 2013-14.
Once the Housing Application is completed and submitted, students may return to the Housing Self Service Page at the MyPack Portal, select the Living and Learning Village link, and complete the appropriate Village applications.
Students admitted into the First Year College (FYC) Village are automatically approved and do not need to complete an application to live in the Village.
Students who received an invitation to either the University Scholars Program or the University Honors Program must go to the Housing Self Service page in the MyPack Portal. Once there, students must select the University Housing folder and the Living and Learning Village link to accept the appropriate Village invitation. Only students who accept the invitation to participate in the Village will be placed in the Village depending on availability. Please note that space is limited.
