Living Learning Communities Florida Tech

Through Living Learning Communities (LLCs), we offer students a dynamic residential experience consisting of specialized programming, interactions with Florida Tech faculty and staff, and a supportive community that focuses on student success.

Students within the community are placed on a common floor and have access to faculty working together with the residence hall staff to use the facility as a setting for co-curricular and social programming based on the content of the community's major/interest area.
