On the Texas Tech campus, a Learning Community houses a group of students on one or more floors of a residence hall with an academic unit focus such as health sciences, architecture, fine arts or a common interest such as first year experience. All share a common goal of creating an educational environment that brings educators and students together to enhance student learning.
We currently have 15 Learning Communities where over 2,300 Red Raiders (about 1/3 of our population) reside. Living in our LCs boosts your chances for academic success and offer the opportunity to share an intellectual experience with your peers. You will also have increased access to faculty and academic support staff.
A limited number of residence halls are open for summer. Students may request housing for the summer and interim periods even though they are not enrolled in summer classes, provided the student will be enrolled for the fall semester.
