Living on campus presents many opportunities to get involved, whether it be with a Housing organization or a campus organization. Residents are encouraged to be involved in their halls to engage with their peers and create opportunities to shape their living experience.
The Living Learning Communities (LLCs) with Housing & Residential Engagement are a chance to live and breathe your interests and major. With LLCs across a spectrum of academic interests, these communities are a chance to engage with your peers, faculty mentors, and Housing staff about topics you know and love.
LLC students must live on campus and in their respective community location. Students are also required to enroll in the common course for their specific community, which means that everyone in the LLC takes the same class at the same time. New LLC students are also expected to attend an LLC orientation during Welcome Home Week.
Residence Hall Association(RHA) provides a voice for the 1,800+ residents in the UCO Housing community. The organization, led by an elected panel of residents, provides all residents with the opportunity to plan programs for their peers, serve the UCO campus and community, and gain leadership while making new friends.
RHA hosts various events throughout the year. These include Welcome Week activities when the residence halls open in the fall, Rock the Block, Here We Glow Again, and Holi. Leaders within the organization have the privilege of representing UCO at various regional and national conferences.
