- Learning Communities
Make campus life a more rewarding adventure by choosing to live on a residence hall floor with people who share your interests, lifestyle or commitment to a major. Students have the opportunity to make connections with their class and floormates and can support each other both in and outside of the classroom. LC residents take a seminar course together and get involved in activities and events on campus. There are also unique opportunities to get to know faculty, staff, and student peer mentors in a close-knit community setting. more »
- Honors Housing
Most first-year students entering the Honors Program will live together in an Honors Residential Community in Buckley Hall. Individuals living in this community will have the benefits of living, studying, and socializing together with other high-achieving students.
Honors Housing After the First Year
After the first year, honors students can continue living in honors housing on a space available basis, or choose from a variety of housing options available in non-honors buildings during room selection. Second year Honors students may choose to live in the Sophomore Honors Community in Brock Hall. Honors students may also have access to honors housing in Wilson Hall suite-style residence hall in South Campus or in the renovated buildings of Connecticut Commons (formerly Graduate Residences), which provide single bedroom housing in a suite-style setting.
Housing in an Honors community after the first year is not guaranteed, nor does Residential Life or the Honors Program guarantee on campus housing for four years.
- Gender Free Housing
The University of Connecticut seeks to provide a living environment welcoming to all gender identities; one not limited to the traditional gender binary. Gender Free Housing allows for same-gender, opposite-gender or other-gender identities to live together regardless of biological sex. Students living in Gender Free Housing are assigned to six person suites with three people in each room.
Applications for this living option are accepted in December/January for the following academic year. Current students are notified of this process via HuskyMail in early December.

- Transfer Community
The Transfer Community focuses on the needs of transfer students, and consists of both new and returning transfer students. Space is limited – students who request to live in the Transfer Community but are not assigned to the community will be assigned throughout campus with another transfer student when possible. Students request to live in this community on the fall housing application. Due to extremely limited space, requests are not accepted to live in this community in the spring.
