Living-learning Communities and Residential Colleges
Michigan State University's living-learning, academic and special interest programs allow students who share similar academic interests or interests in multi-cultural living experiences to live together in a designated residence hall or on a particular residence hall floor.
Many of the living-learning options allow students to attend class with the same group of peers in their residence hall, which enhances friendships and networking and facilitates ease of gatherings and study time.
Residence Education and Housing Services is proud to partner with these programs as they seek to enhance students' experiences at MSU.
