Living-Learning Communities

Engineering Living-Learning Community: The Engineering living-learning program is housed in Buxton and Hawley Halls. All pre-engineering majors are welcome in the Engineering Living-Learning Community.

This unique living community is a great way for pre-engineering students to make friendships and create connections between their in-class and out-of-class experiences. Residents can get to know College of Engineering faculty and advisors outside of the classroom, and also have access to the DamLab Makerspace, a state-of-the-art lab equipped with 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC mills and other tools, on the first floor of Buxton Hall.

Special Interest Communities

Second Year and Above: The first floor houses a Second Year & Above community for engineering students who have already completed at least one year of college. Second Year & Above community residents can access a private lounge, a large updated kitchen, and single-user gender-inclusive bathrooms on the floor.

Women in Science and Engineering: The fifth floor of Buxton is home to a Women in Science Engineering (WISE) floor, an opportunity for women in science to gain coaching and mentorship specific to their program.

Single-Gender Suites: Buxton has single-gender suites that are available to students requesting a religious exemption. Residents of these suites agree to no visitors of the opposite gender and a substance-free environment.
