SNHU’s Residential Learning Communities (RLC) are dynamic communities designed to promote academic and interest based themes through programs and activities. In addition to the programmatic and service benefits of residential life, students in these communities of coed suites are provided a house stipend and will enjoy theme-oriented social, recreational and educational programs, interact with faculty and staff specializing in the theme area, connect with related student organizations and meet peers who share similar interests. Currently, the Residential Learning Communities reside in East Side Residence Halls
The Goals of Residential Learning Communities
- Cultivate an environment in which like-minded students may work, live and learn from others who share similar interests, goals and aspirations
- Provide leadership experiences and personal growth opportunities for all participants
- Foster a co-gendered group of SNHU students who are civically involved in the happenings of their program, area, university and their community (locally, nationally and globally.)
Any full-time student may submit a proposal for a program. A program is a yearlong schedule of educational activities focused around a central theme, such as a foreign language, science, health and wellness, diverse cultures or art.
When space is available, students can choose to join one of the Residential Learning Community programs that have already been approved. Take a look at the existing programs and we'll walk you through the steps you'll need to join them.
