University Housing offers three Living-Learning Communities for students involved in the following areas:

  • Equestrian
  • E-Sports
  • Honors Program

Students in Living-Learning Communities will have access to unique opportunities that will improve their on-campus experience at USC Aiken. This also allows students to live with people who have similar interests to them. Research has shown that people who join a Living Learning Community are more engaged academically, socially and with the community.
