Living Learning Communities

What is an LLC?

Gonzaga's Living-Learning Communities are themed housing options, designed for students who are interested in pursuing their passions alongside others outside of the classroom. Each learning community is the result of partnership between Housing and Residence Life and a variety of academic and educational on-campus departments.

Our LLCs are committed to fostering a spirit of growth and reflection in each resident that will last a lifetime, in accordance with our Jesuit foundation.  While each community is different, all LLCs aim to bring together people with similar interests to actively pursue learning through programs and events that extends beyond the classroom.

What are the benefits?

  • Live with people who share your interests
  • Interact with faculty and staff regularly outside of the classroom
  • Experience what it means to live in community with others
  • Enjoy access to some of our newest residence halls on campus
  • Challenge yourself to critically engage with the world around you
