Living Learning Communities at United

Living-Learning Communities (LLC) are small groups of students from the same faculty or program who live together in the same area of residence.

United offers several specialized Living Learning Communities and the only French Language and Indigenous Student floors at University of Waterloo, all designed to help you get the most out of your first year at university. These programs are structured so you can engage more deeply with your subject and form lasting friendships along the way.

Living in a United College LLC, you'll: 

  • have fun - you can participate in all regular residence activities as well as the unique programs hosted by peer leaders in your community 
  • be part of a small, friendly residence community with students from various University of Waterloo programs.
  • make it to class on time - we are 3 minutes away from the closest Environment building 

Peer Leaders

Faculty Peer Leaders are upper-year students in the various Faculties who will be living in or visiting the Living-Learning Community they are associated with at United College on a regular basis. Peer Leaders will provide students with academic support, put them in touch with professors, run academic-based events, and help students figure out what classes to take in future terms.
