UT Arlington's Learning Communities are all housed on-campus in the Kalpana Chawla (KC) residence hall. General learning communities serve as a geographic boundary within KC Hall where like-minded majors can live together, attend major- or interest-oriented programming, and rely on one another for academic and social support. For example, engineering and architecture majors can occupy the same area of KC Hall. We call that area a "learning community" and to assist students in identifying with their learning community, we give it a fun name like "Designing the 21st Century." Any learning community can serve as the home to several Freshmen Interest Groups. To join a general learning community, apply for campus housing and indicate a preference for KC Hall and your learning community.
