Prospective & Incoming Students Living Learning Community Application Process


If you are interested in participating in a living learning community, you should indicate your preferences through the on-line Housing and Meal Plan Application (which will be available the beginning of February) which can be accessed through the Syracuse University Myslice page. This on-line enrollment request form must be completed by mid-May 2020. (To gain access the on-line Housing application, you will need to make your advanced housing payment and activate your NetID.)  If you are interested in more than one living learning community, you may rank order your choices to a maximum of three.


Step 1: Log onto MySlice.

Step 2: Select the Self Service link (located under Housing and Meal Plans).

Step 3: Select First Year On-Campus Application link (located under the Application & Forms heading).

Step 4: In the Personal Information section, on question 9, indicate "Yes" for your interest in applying for a living learning community.  Then on questions 9a, 9b, and 9c - Rank your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice for the living learning communities you are most interested in applying for. (See image below)


Step 5: Finish the rest of the application and select the Submit button.

That's it!  Students who are placed within a living learning community, will see their placement (updated on a rolling basis) at the top of the First Term Enrollment Selection page through Myslice.  All students who applied for a living learning community will be notified in mid-July through their e-mail of their living learning community placement status.

If you are having problems signing up, see under Resources on the Housing Office Website.


Roommate Requests

If you are also making a mutual roommate request, each of you must make the same living learning community choice(s).

Honor Students

If you have been invited to participate in the Renée Crown University Honors Program, you are encouraged to enroll in a living learning community. Honors students who do not select one of the other living learning communities will be housed in proximity to other honors students in clusters collectively known as the Honors Living Learning Community.  Honors students living in the Honors Living Learning Community are allowed to have a roommate who is not an Honors student.

Academic Advising

Because many of our living learning communities include one or more academic courses, you may want to consult an academic advisor in your home college to discuss how the academic component fits with your particular curriculum and the effect of transfer or advanced placement credits prior to making a selection. Your college will be evaluating your transfer and AP credits. These credits may affect your eligibility to enroll in certain living learning communities.
