Student-Directed Learning Communities
Established in 1992, the Student Directed Learning Communities (SDLC) are housing opportunities within the College-owned homes along the perimeter of the campus. They offer small groups of upper class students the opportunity to create a unique, self-directed living environment, centered on a common theme, issue, or interest through which the group is expected to share and enrich the campus community.
The SDLCs are awarded in the spring semester through a very selective application procedure coordinated by a committee of students faculty and staff. Residents are responsible for their own cooking, cleaning, and house management details. Optional meal plans are available.
Please read the 2015-2016 SDLC Guidelines for more information on SDLCs and the application process.
THE 2015-2016 SDLC APPLICATION IS CURRENTLY CLOSED. Applications will be available on February 2 and due February 27 by 5:00 PM.
Please Note: All students must have business office accounts paid in full by March 1 to register for a lottery number and participate in the housing selection process. This includes the SDLC applicants.
SDLCs are considered premium housing. Please visit the Business Office Website for more information.
