Find your home!
You’re curious. You’re eager to start college. You want to live in a community with students who share your interests. And maybe you even want a little TLC.
There’s a place for that!
Check out USI's Theme Living Communities (TLCs, formerly known as Living Learning Communities) for first year students.
In a TLC, you'll live with other students who share your interests and dreams. And at USI, we create TLCs to match what YOU are excited about. When you apply for Housing, you'll tell us what themes you're most interested in. By March 1st, we'll unveil the TLCs for the 2022-2023 year!
We have three TLCs which are definite for next year:
Honors TLC - open to students in the Honors Program
Nursing & Health Professions TLC - open to students with majors in the College of Nursing and Health Professions
STEM+ TLC - open to students with STEM majors (science, technology, engineering, and math, including kinesiology and sport)
The other TLCs are up to YOU! When you fill out the TLC application, you can rank your top 5 TLC choices from the following list:
Major Based TLCs:
Arts & Humanities
Romain College of Business
Interest Based TLCs:
Esports & Gaming
Service & Leadership
Sports & Fitness
Community Based TLCs:
Screagles Pride (LGBTQA*)
and finally - Everything Bagel - No specific theme! Just students who want a close community!
If you fill out the TLC application, you'll receive an email by March 1st introducing the chosen TLCs for 2022-2023. At that time, you'll be able to select your TLC or opt into general housing.
