Living Learning Communities in Residence

A Living Learning Community is the integration of students who share similar interests into a residence community with programming and support from within the university and community.  If you are interested in living in one of the following Living Learning Communities, please indicate this on your application. The four LLC options are:



CONNECT aims to help students become citizens of the world through intercultural awareness, music, art, language, and an introduction to a variety of campus, community, and global resources. You will explore current world events and international perspectives, gain a greater awareness for embracing diversity, and continue to develop as global citizens.



BALANCE takes a holistic approach to all aspects of health and wellness. This community promotes a healthy lifestyle, with the focus on your physical, social, and emotional well-being. Students will work together to provide an environment of support and encourage each other to live a well-balanced lifestyle through programs run within the greater Nipissing University community.



L.E.A.D. (Leaders Emerging through Active Development) is for students who love to be involved and are passionate about leadership, learning, and motivating others.  By exploring personal strengths and working on self development, residents will discover the value of leadership oriented learning and will strengthen their leadership potential through a variety of activities and practice.  This LLC is offered at our Townhouse Residence Complex and restricted to upper-year students. 



MOSAIC is an outlet for your creative side, and will connect students who have a strong interest in artistic expression and cultural awareness with students who have a passion for media, music, and design.  Whether you are an experienced artist, a hobbyist, or a novice, come and explore your passion with others who share your appreciation for anything expressive. Don’t worry, talent is not a prerequisite, but you will be encouraged to be creative and supportive citizens through programs such as open mic nights, media productions, and art displays.
