Students working in a commons area of SELF Hall

Engineering Learning Community

Self Engineered is the Engineering Living/Learning Community (ELC) for freshmen engineering and computing students. 

Self Engineered students live together in Self Hall on the first, second, and third floors.  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.  Resident Assistants on these floors are upper level engineering students trained to support freshmen through the adjustments and rigors they experience during their first year of college.  RA's provide guidance to help students develop good study habits, form study groups, and build those important peer relationships that can be vital to their success.  

Being a part of Self Engineered ELC is easy and free*!

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 a Self Engineered ELC room on the first, second, or third 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 first, second, or third 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.
