Residential Communities

UW-Green Bay offers a variety of residential communities for students living on campus. These communities are designed to provide students with unique living experiences that enhance their academic and personal growth. We offer two types of residential communities: living learning communities and thematic communities. There are numerous benefits of living in a residential community including:

  • Higher GPAs
  • Higher retention & persistence rates
  • Sense of belonging
  • Easier transition to college
  • Built in social groups

Living Learning Communities

Living learning communities are designed to bring together students who share similar academic interests or goals. These communities provide students with the opportunity to live and learn with peers who are taking similar courses and pursuing similar career paths. Living learning communities require students to enroll in a class together and also offer a range of academic and social activities that help students connect with faculty members and other students who share their interests.

These communities provide students with opportunities to engage in activities and events related to their interests, while also fostering a sense of community and belonging on campus. Thematic communities can focus on a wide range of topics, such as sustainability, leadership, or cultural heritage.
