Learning Communities

Learning Communities are an academic strategy that link academics to on-campus living. Each Georgia Tech community is an integrated experience that promotes interactions between faculty and students, fosters collaboration among students, enhances campus and civic engagement, and eases both the academic and social transition to college. 

Admitted first year students are invited to apply to: 

  • First-Year Semester Abroad
  • Explore Living Learning Community
  • Global Leadership Living Learning Community 
  • Grand Challenges Living Learning Community 
  • Honors Program Living Learning Community 
  • Impact Living Learning Community 
  • iGniTe Summer Programs

While each of these communities offers a different focus, they all have required academic coursework, an opportunity to reside with the community, and the option to continue living with members of the community in nearby apartments as upper-level students.

Rising second year students are invited to apply to:

  • Women, Science, and Technology (WST) Living Learning Community
  • International House (I-House) Living Learning Community

WST and I-House require students to participate in community activities and events and offer optional coursework.
