Living and Learning Communities
Living and Learning Communities (LLCs) are available each year for Fairfield's undergraduate students. In addition to traditional residence hall options, the LLCs aim to transform the entire Fairfield University culture - involving faculty, administrators, students, and staff. The LLCs create a multicultural community across campus, building on the Fairfield University strategic vision of integrating learning through a variety of intentional community housing programs.
