WVU’s Living-Learning Communities (LLC) are on-campus student communities formed around a theme or specific field of study. They provide a supportive environment where you can live with others who share your academic and/or social interests and allow you to connect with faculty, staff and professionals in areas aligned with the LLC's emphasis.
