At Concordia University Irvine, you can make the most of our world-class education and campus experience. CUI believes that the learning environment extends beyond the traditional lecture hall or laboratory and into the informal learning spaces of the residence halls, recreation areas, and gathering places. Our residence halls provide many opportunities for you to create lifelong friendships, build leadership skills, work, have fun, and access academic support to keep you on the road to graduation and success. You will be supported and challenged to experience more and accomplish more so you can become the leaders who will transform yourselves and the world.
It is with great pleasure and excitement that we extend a warm welcome to each and every one of you as you anticipate living in one of our LLCs, Living Learning Communities. It is a blessing to have you as a part of this vibrant and supportive community dedicated to fostering learning, growth, and a sense of belonging.
The Living Learning Communities are not just a place to reside; it is a unique environment where you will have the opportunity to learn, collaborate, and build lasting connections with your peers and the Faculty/Staff in Residence. Here, you will find a space that encourages personal and academic development.
