Rutgers University–New Brunswick Learning communities are a self-selected group of students who share similar academic interests and explore them together in common courses and out of classroom activities at no extra cost to the student. Students in learning communities report making friends quickly and expanding their faculty, and staff network. Learning community residents are afforded unique opportunities for academic and social success.
The majority of communities are residentially-based (living-learning communities), which means that participating students not only co-enroll in common courses but also live in the same residence hall. These communities are a wonderful opportunity for students who are undecided about their major or want to explore a particular academic topic.
There are a multitude of learning community offerings for our new students and our current students. Special interest/themed communities with no academic coursework are also available. Explore the different offerings and choose one that best fits your interests!
