Engineering Learning Community 

Since 2003, the School of Engineering has been proud to offer the Engineering Learning Community (ELC) program for freshmen engineering and computing students. The program allows freshmen the opportunity to build the study habits and peer support that can be vital to their success.  Living among other engineering students is a great way to not only meet other students in the same program but also to form those essential study groups for first year courses.  

Beginning in Fall 2016, the ELC will be housed on the zero and first floors of the newly completed Self Hall.

That's not the only change we've made!

  • To make the process easier, we eliminated the application. 
  • To give you more control, you will be able to choose your room.
  • To offer you more flexibility, you can pull-in a non-engineering roommate if you choose!​

We did keep one thing the same, it’s still free!*
There is no additional cost beyond your normal Housing & Dining costs to live in the ELC.


How the new process will work

It’s simple. 

  1. Sign your Housing Contract early.
    This will ensure you are one of the first students to be able to choose your room during the room selection process. Spaces available in the ELC are limited and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis during the regular room selection process. 
  2. Choose an ELC room on the zero or first floor of Self Hall during the regular room selection process. 
    Admitted Engineering Students will have exclusive access to choose from ELC designated rooms on the zero and first floor of Self Hall, in addition to all other rooms that are available.  At this point students can choose to pull-in a roommate. 

It’s just that easy.
 

What should I do next?

Sign your Housing contract as early as possible.  
This will ensure you are one of the first students to be able to choose your room during the room selection process.  Spaces available in the ELC are limited and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis during the regular room selection process.
