Engineering Residential Learning Community

Engineering Residential Learning Community

This residential learning community is located in Academic Village (AV) – Engineering Hall and offers Engineering students an academically supportive and fun environment. Residents can take advantage of design studios, collaborative work rooms, and an electronic classroom. Residents can also take advantage of nightly tutoring (Sunday-Thursday), general advising support in the form of weekly advising drop-in hours, a live-in “Faculty-in-Residence” and live-in Graduate Academic Coaches (GACs), as well as several Engineering Peer Mentors who are returning students living in the hall to support the students with their personal and professional development. Although space is probably available in the designated residence hall, there is not a guarantee students admitted to this community will be placed in AV – Engineering Hall for the 2024-2025 academic year.
