Apply to Join a Virtual LLC


New for 2020-2021! The Living Learning Community (LLC) Program is transitioning to a virtual experience for the 2020-2021 school year. This means students living on and off campus are able to participate, and no community will be assigned a physical floor. If you are interested in joining a Living Learning Community please complete LLC signup application or email livinglearning@orl.ucla.edu with any questions. While "community" may be built in new ways, it will still be the motivation behind all that we do. We look forward to connecting with you!.

Classes on the Hill

Before the transition to virtual classes, Residential Life partnered with GE Cluster and Fiat Lux programs to host classes on the Hill. Now offered virtually, GE Cluster and Fiat Lux programs offer students an intimate atmosphere, group activities, and the opportunity to connect with fellow students.

Cluster Program

UCLA's Freshman Clusters are yearlong, team-taught, interdisciplinary courses available to entering freshmen students, most of which are taught on the Hill. The Clusters offer first-year students the opportunity to study complex topics in depth, with smaller class sizes and personal access to some of UCLA’s most prestigious faculty members. Students are part of learning communities of fellow students with similar interests, which helps in the transition to college. Clusters focus on big topics of timely importance such as the global environment, or interracial dynamics.

Fiat Lux Seminars

The Fiat Lux program is a collection of one-unit (pass/no-pass) seminars spanning the rich variety of disciplines at UCLA, several of which are taught by Faculty-in-Residence and some are held on the Hill. Designed primarily for first-year students, these seminars provide an opportunity for undergraduates to learn about our world class faculty’s intellectual passions and expertise. Although listed under the Honors program, all students are invited to participate.
