What are Residential Learning Communities?

Residential Learning Communities bring together faculty, staff and students around an explicit focus within the University Residence Halls. Unique seminars and class sections and aligned co-curricular activities all help produce smaller, more intentional communities that set students up for success.

Around 1 in 5 students living in the University Residence Halls will have the opportunity to elevate their WI Experience by joining a Residential Learning Community.  Think about which one is for you.

Residential Learning Communities, co-sponsored by UW-Madison Schools & Colleges, have been identified as High Impact Educational Practices both on campus and nationally.  They have been widely tested and have shown to be beneficial for college students.  Additionally, resources from the Madison Initiative for Undergraduates, a supplemental tuition charge to invest in the quality of the undergraduate experience, has been allocated to enhance and expand our Residential Learning Communities.
