If you haven't completed your housing contract, you can indicate that you are interested in the residential learning community by selecting the option on your housing contract. You'll have to make sure that you meet the criteria - like having the required major to live in that community.
You can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 970-351-2721 and let them know that you didn't indicate your interest on your housing contract, but that you would like to be considered for a learning community.
Unless your community is attached to a special program like Cumbres or Honors, you do not have to complete an additional application.
In most cases, yes, you are required to take the co-enrolled course to live in the RLC. However, exceptions can be made if needed. While you are attending orientation, you can discuss this with your academic advisor.
You will receive information about signing up for the co-enrolled course in April. Most people will sign up for the course at orientation, but your space in that course will be held just for you.
Talk about your options with your advisor. Exceptions can be made on a case by case basis.
On March 1st, you will receive information from Housing & Residential Education to your UNC e-mail that will provide you with instructions about how to select a room. You will just need to follow those instructions in order to change your room assignment. This will be based on the day you completed your housing contract.
The learning community locations are determined on an annual basis based on demand and occupancy management. Many communities have multiple locations on campus. We do not announce the locations of most communities because of changes that can occur. Once your assignment is made - you can check to see your housing location by logging into your housing contract.
Assignments are made on a first come, first serve basis. Changes occur throughout the summer, so if you didn't get admitted into the community that you were interested in - let us know you're still interested by e-mailing us at email@example.com.
