Living Learning Communities

Living Learning Communities are an academic strategy that link academics to on-campus living. Each Georgia Tech community is an integrated experience that promotes interactions between faculty and students, fosters collaboration among students, improves student GPA, enhances campus and civic engagement, increases retention, and eases both the academic and social transition to college. 

As an entering first-year student, students admitted to Georgia Tech are invited to apply to: 

  • Global Leadership Living Learning Community 
  • Grand Challenges Living Learning Community 
  • Honors Program Living Learning Community 
  • Science and Math Research Training (SMaRT) Living Learning Community 
  • Science, Health, and Related Professions (SHaRP) Living Learning Community 
  • iGniTe Summer Programs Living Learning Community (Summer)

While each of these communities offers a different focus, they all have required academic coursework, a first year living requirement, and the option to continue living with members of the community in nearby apartments as upper-level students.

Rising second-year students are invited to apply to:

  • Women, Science, and Technology (WST) Living Learning Community
  • International House (I-House) Living Learning Community

WST and I-House require students to participate in community activities and events and offer optional coursework.
