Living Learning Communities

Learning Communities are a great way to tailor your college experience by living on a floor with other with similar majors or interests.

How do I sign up for a community?

New students: When you sign up for housing, check which learning community you're interested in joining. That lets us know to plan for enough space. In June, you'll log in to choose your hall and room. Use the Use 2 search to see all the available spaces in that learning community.

Returning students: When selecting your room for fall, use the Use 2 search to see all the learning community rooms.

Can I still live with a friend if they're not eligible for the learning community?

Yes. Directions will be provided in the Room Selection Group email in May on how to add a friend who doesn't match the concept of the learning community.

Academic learning communities

It’s not required to live in the community if you are a member of the college it represents, but many students enjoy the advantage of people pursuing the same major living around them. 

Honors-based Learning Communities

Students who are a part of the Lee Honors College can choose from two honors communities or honors sections within some of WMU’s existing academic learning communities. Honors sections mean, as numbers allow, that roommates and suitemates are also in the Honors College.

Interest-based learning communities

These communities bring together students with similar interests or life experiences.
