Upperclass Student Living Learning Community Application Process

This two-step application process is for current students who will be a sophomore, junior, or senior student in the Fall 2021 semester.  The first step is completing and submitting the Housing contract by Monday, April 12th and the second step is selecting your room and hall during the LLC Round of Room Selection on Wednesday, April 14, 2021.   See below for complete directions.  No prior living learning community (LLC) experience is necessary.

In order to participate in Room Selection, you must be a current enrolled undergraduate SU student.  If you have any questions about this, please contact the Housing Office at 315-443-2721 or email housing@syr.edu.  Check out the Housing Office website for more information about Room Selection for Current students.

By selecting a room within the LLC round, you are agreeing to participate fully in the LLC, which includes registering for any LLC classes and attending any events.  If you fail to participate or if your behavior is detrimental to the purpose of the LLC as outlined in the LLC description, you may be removed from the LLC.

Note: When selecting a room during the LLC Round, you must fill the room to capacity.

Finding a Roommate 

If you do not already have a roommate and are looking for one, you can use MyCollegeRoomie (MCR) to help you find a roommate.  Once you have completed your Housing Contract, you will receive an email invitation to join MCR, which is a user-friendly website that allows you to connect with other current students who are participating in room selection and possibly select a roommate.  Make sure to include your LLC interests in your MCR profile – this will allow you to search for and find possible roommates with your same LLC interests.
