STEM Living Learning Communities

Computer Science Living-Learning Community

The Douglass-SAS-DIMACS Computer Science Living-Learning Community is a self-selected group of first-year students who will enjoy the benefits of sharing common residential and academic experiences while making new friends, exploring common interests, and being a part of a close community of peers.

Students will benefit from special programs in the residence hall, and having a peer mentor in residence to provide help in answering all those Rutgers questions. The Douglass-SAS-DIMACS Computer Science Living-Learning Community offers students the opportunity to explore educational themes outside the classroom. Additional interaction with faculty outside the classroom will help students build relationships with their professors. Students who live together to focus around a common intellectual purpose have better opportunities to reinforce their academic goals. This community integrates opportunities to network with faculty, industry, and government experts in computer science while promoting diversity and inclusion in the field.

Reilly Douglass Engineering Living-Learning Community


First-year women in the School of Engineering now have the opportunity to live in a unique Douglass Residential College and School of Engineering community housed in the engineering-focused Barr Residence Hall on Busch Campus. Students will become fully integrated into the engineering community through hands-on learning, mentoring, interaction with School of Engineering faculty and alumni representatives, and innovative programming centered on professional development and academic enhancement. Students will also connect with peers enrolled in engineering core courses and have the advantage of tutoring support services provided in residence. Women in this residential community will become well equipped to succeed in their academic work and in the field of engineering.

Bunting-Cobb for Women in STEM Living-Learning Community


Recognizing the challenges and academic rigor of a science, technology, engineering, or math major, the hall offers a supportive community for women pursuing these areas of study.  Programming centers around peer study groups, career programs, internship resources, and skill enhancement sessions. Bunting-Cobb residents are encouraged to participate in the programs offered in the residence hall, meet regularly with the Graduate Mentors, and respect the academic environment of the residence hall. Additionally, Bunting-Cobb residents are strongly encouraged to engage in programs sponsored by the Douglass Project and the Douglass Residential College Community.  Becoming an active member in this community and participating in programs will help build your leadership skills, broaden your horizons, and encourage your academic growth.
