Residential Learning Communities bring together faculty, staff and students around an explicit focus within University Residence Halls. Unique seminars and class sections and aligned co-curricular activities all help produce smaller, more intentional communities that set students up for success.

Residential Learning Communities at UW-Madison include:

Some talking points for the present time and future of learning communities.:
  • Each year over the past 5 years interest in learning communities has increased by 20%.
  • 97% of applicants receive their first choice.
  • The additional fee for learning communities is $200 with the exception of Chadbourne Residential College, which is $300. This covers the whole year. Students can apply for a grant to cover this additional fee pending their financial need.
  • The CRC is the largest learning community.
  • Students have the option to tour learning communities, though they must request this in advance. They can call the University Housing office to set up a tour.
