Living Learning Centers

The Living Learning Centers at Stony Brook University provide students with the unique opportunity to integrate their academic experiences with their living environment. Students may live with other residents who share similar academic interests, and interact with faculty on a more personal level outside of the traditional classroom setting.

The goals of the programs are achieved by providing credit and non-credit learning experiences within a residence hall. Each center is staffed with a Residence Hall Director and a Faculty Director. These individuals are valuable resources who are available to help residents by answering questions, offering advice, and planning exciting programs. The Living Learning Centers include:

  • Media Arts
  • Environmental Studies
  • International Studies
  • Human Gender and Sexual Development
  • Health and Wellness
  • Community Service
  • Leadership Development
