Shared Interest Living-Learning Communities (LLC) are organized either around students’ shared academic or social interests. Students in Shared Interest LLCs have the opportunity to build strong academic and social support systems with their fellow residents with whom they have a common interest. Each group is supported by either an academic department or a Student Life office that work with HRC to provide students with a living experience that is unique to their individual interests.

The following Shared Interest LLC options are available during the 2021-2022 Academic Year.

Engineering and Computer Science

A unique living option is available for male engineering and computer science students in Bryant Hall, which houses student-athletes and freshmen from the College of Engineering. This living option provides an environment where students can exchange ideas, experiences, skills, and even class notes. The interaction between students with similar interests, and sometimes the same classes, is one of the main advantages of this living option. Students who select their option should be majoring in a degree program offered by the College of Engineering.

Mallet Assembly

Mallet Assembly, currently located in Highlands, is a group of original thinkers and eclectic personalities. This living option has the following goals:

  • to recognize extraordinary scholastic achievement through its admissions process
  • to encourage further scholastic development through a comprehensive system of in-house programs designed as learning activities that are enjoyable
  • to encourage the development of leadership skills through the self-government of the program and encouragement of individual and collective involvement throughout all areas of campus life
  • to gather students to these ends with high scholastic and achievement records into a unique environment encompassing academics, recreation, unity, and fellowship.

Rotary International House

The Rotary International House offers a small, co-ed atmosphere for international students and other UA students who are interested in interacting with students from other nations. Students are selected for participation based on their interest and ability to be contributing community members.
