In support of the academic mission of the university, the Department of Residence Life is excited to offer the option for students to live in Living Learning Communities as well as Interest Communities. Associated with this mission, students will pay an additional fee of up to $100 to support programming and event opportunities associated with their choice of community, except the Cooper Agriculture LLC. Each LLC has a separate registration process. Please go to the website or programmatic department for the LLC of your choice to register and submit the $100 programmatic fee*.

The benefits of living within a Living Learning Community (LLC):

  • Enhanced academic and social opportunities
  • Improved grade point average
  • Greater involvement in learning
  • Increased satisfaction with your UW-Platteville experience
  • Friendships with classmates who may be in the same classes and programs
  • Stronger academic relationships and better connections with faculty members

Interest Communities

Residence Life Interest Communities (RLICs) are available to students who share a common interest. Interest communities are residential-based living-learning or themed programs designed to enhance the overall undergraduate student experience by fostering one-on-one relationships between faculty, staff, and students in a close-knit residence hall environment. Students are encouraged to explore intellectual, cultural, and social interests through experiential activities often linked to the academic curriculum. Unlike our LLC communities, RLICs do not have any Programmatic fees associated with them. RLICs are available to an entire building community at no additional fee.

Many studies have shown that students living within interest communities often achieve higher grade point averages and are more likely to persist until graduation than those students not living in them. In our RLICs, residents have a more effortless way of finding academic resources and social networks because these services will be readily promoted to them.
