You can contact the LLC Liaisons who have information regarding all LLCs or the faculty/staff advisor listed on the LLC specific page. 
Starting Fall 2019, M Street will house all LLCs except Engineering II which will be hosted in Jones Hall.
LLCs give students the opportunity to live in an academically focused living environment to excel the academic and social experience of living on campus. Students living in LLCs will create long-lasting relationships with students who have similar interests and career goals. 
All LLCs have different requirements to be considered to live in the communities. Most of our LLCs require you to be a first time incoming freshmen student and have declared a specific major/college program to be considered in an LLC. Please see the individual LLC pages above for more details. 

Indicate on your initial housing application or during your housing sign up time or complete LLC resident application form and email it to llc@atu.edu. You can also complete the link below to apply for an LLC.
