Learning Communities

Find your community.

A great way to launch your UConn journey is by participating in a Learning Community with students whose majors or interests are similar to yours. By joining one, you'll be able to navigate UConn and our resources with a close-knit group of peers who will quickly make UConn feel like home.

With more than 30 Learning Communities, 20 of which are residential, students can select to live and learn in major- or interest-based communities. Students who choose to live in a Learning Community report forming closer bonds with faculty; making friends faster; gaining access to special programming, field trips, and unique education abroad programs; and having more opportunities to engage in leadership positions or undergraduate research. UConn's Learning Communities have garnered national attention for their unique approach to supporting first-year students.

Peter J. Werth Residence Tower

Our newest residence hall, the Peter J. Werth Residence Tower, is home to a selection of UConn's Residential Learning Communities and the UConn Innovation Zone - a Makerspace where UConn students, faculty, and staff gather together to inspire, create, and innovate. In addition to Werth Tower, there are several other residence halls throughout campus that house Learning Communities.
