Living Learning Communities by Interest

Green

Overview

The Green Living Learning Community (Green LLC) is a vibrant, dynamic student community focused on living an actively sustainable lifestyle. Community members lead the way by advocating the positive effects of being socially responsible and actively engaged in the community. While creating an atmosphere of awareness for their peers, students in this community have the opportunity to make a difference by pursuing their own initiatives and working with faculty and administrators on a variety of campus green projects. Located in Maple Hall, the community is open to both first-year and returning students from all majors. Past activities have included helping host an annual Swap Shop, creating hydroponic gardens in the hall, planting a butterfly garden, composting, engaging with a film series, mixing organic products (e.g. hair gel, cleaning products, etc.), and visiting green sites, like a hydroponic farm.

Located In: Maple Hall

Open To: All students

Benefits of the Green LLC

Application Process

Apply to live in an LLC (Click "Programs and Events")

To gain admission to an LLC, you will need to complete an online LLC program application (in addition to the general USF housing application) and be admitted into the LLC program. Please note that you are limited to one LLC program application per academic year.

When completing an LLC program application that requires longer responses, we recommend typing into a Microsoft Word document that you can save and refer back to if you have any complications. Once you submit an application, a confirmation page should appear. You will also receive a confirmation email in your USF email account. If you do not receive these confirmations, please contact livinglearning@usf.edu, as your application was not received.

LLC Admission Decisions

Once received, your application will be reviewed by the appropriate LLC for a decision on admission. You will be notified via your USF email account regarding your LLC admission status. Each LLC has its own review timeline, but most programs will review applications and begin making application decisions by early March. Admission decisions are for one academic year. Students wishing to return to their LLC for an additional year should contact their program coordinator for specific instructions.

If at any point you wish to withdraw an application, please email us at livinglearning@usf.edu.

If you are admitted to an LLC, you will automatically be assigned into that community. If you do not meet the eligibility requirements, or the LLC has reached capacity, your housing assignment will be based on the preferences in your general housing application.

For questions regarding the general housing application, meal plans, payment information, etc., please contact housing@usf.edu or 813-974-0001.
