Freshmen have the unique opportunity to live in
the residence halls with a group of students who
have similar interests. LLCs allow students to take
classes with this group AND live together.
Enrollment in the LLC program is connuously
changing. Visit OFYE’s website to learn more and
check availability.
If a student has not applied for housing, they can
apply for an LLC when the housing applicaon is
filled out through Ulink. If a student has already
applied for housing, please contact Dana Bekurs
directly at dana@louisiana.edu.
