Student Housing and Residential Life

Living Learning Communities

Living Learning Communities at CSUMB are where students of similar interests, identities, and/or academic studies live together and participate in intentional learning about their chosen program as a collective. Within a community, students are actively engaged in programs like field trips, dialogue groups, faculty dinners, and increased exposure to opportunities on and off campus.

I would highly recommend that you join a living learning community. Almost everyone who lives on your floor you will become friends with. It helps you all become friends when you all have common interests. It's just an overall great experience and I highly recommend it.
