Information for

Global Business & Digital Arts Living-Learning Community


If you want a dynamic environment where your floor mates also enjoy expressing creativity through emerging technologies, then Living-Learning is for you.


Join your academic community


New for Fall 2017, the Global Business & Digital Arts (GBDA) program will be offering first-year students the chance to live in a Living-Learning Community.

In addition to living and learning with your peers, this community will provide you with support from your Peer Leader – an upper-year GBDA student who has been successful in the program and can support and guide you to the individuals and resources you need to make your first year a successful one.


Activities & Events


Your Peer Leader will connect you with programs that will enhance your in-class learning and help you understand more about the GBDA industry. Planned Living-Learning programs for this year include:

  • GBDA Welcome: House Warming Event | September 14, 2017
  • GBDA Dinner with Faculty and Staff | October 30, 2017
  • Preparing Portfolios 101 | November TBD
  • Two 1-1 goal setting sessions with your Peer Leader

About UW Place - New Residence Building


The GBDA Community will be located in UW Place. Students who select the GBDA Community will have the opportunity to rank their preference between 3 different room types:

UWP Residence

Single room in a UW Place suite

New Residence Building

Single or semi-private room in the New Residence Building


Please note that selecting the GBDA Community guarantees you a place in the community, it does not guarantee that you will receive your first choice of room type. Many students select the same room type and there are only so many rooms available to the GBDA Community. Therefore, it is impossible to guarantee every student their first choice.
