The Engineering Living Learning Community has been designed specifically for engineering students, and prospective engineering students, that wish to supplement their residence experience with more academic programming, strong community connections and a unique floor experience engineered for success!

Students living in the Engineering LLC will benefit from the support and community atmosphere of being surrounded with other dedicated students who share academic interests, classes and similar academic responsibilities.

Facilitated in partnership with the Faculty of Engineering, students living in the Engineering LLC will have access to supplemental instruction sessions, study groups and common interest related activities facilitated by their Residence Advisor, (an upper year Engineering Student). Building strong community connections, in both Residence and the academic community, can help students adjust to the challenges of university life and help balance the high demands of studying engineering.

The Healthy Active Living Learning Community (HALLC) at the University of Manitoba is an opportunity for you to grow as a person and live the lifestyle that makes you happy and healthy. This unique community is intended for a diverse range of students who are passionate about a lifestyle involving health and wellness.

During the year, members of the community have attended a Winnipeg Blue Bombers home game at the new Investors Group Field located on campus. Numerous fitness challenges throughout the year allows participants to make health a priority.

As a community with specialized programs, off-campus trips, volunteer opportunities and events, HALLC will help participants reach their goals and succeed in residence. This unique floor engages residents in their own passions for healthy living, allowing them to shape the community for their benefit.

 ► What is a Living Learning Community (LLC)?

Living Learning Communities provide students with the opportunity to explore common interests with other students in their living environment. This opportunity helps them to make purposeful links between the academic and co-curricular components of their university experience.

In a Living Learning Community, you’ll live in a small group or “cluster” of students who are enrolled in the same academic program or have the same personal interests as you do. The programming and structure of each community is designed to meet the unique needs of the students. LLCs are a great place to live and an easy place to make friends, since you already have a common interest.

Currently at the University of Manitoba we have the following Living Learning Communities (see below for details and application forms):

  • Engineering Living Learning Community
  • Healthy Active Living Learning Community
