Michigan Learning Communities
When academics or personal interests intersect with the living environment, students grow and learning is enhanced. The University of Michigan offers a variety of residential living/learning programs that allow students with similar interests or goals to live and study together in community and to meet students from other countries, cultures and backgrounds.
Many of these Michigan Learning Communities are housed in the University’s residence halls and provide a smaller, more intimate environment for the exploration of a specific field of study. By thinking, studying, living and learning with others who share and understand their aspirations, students can maximize both their academic and personal experiences at Michigan. Each of the programs listed here is associated with a U-M academic department. Complete details can be found on each program's website.
