STEM Living Learning Communities

Computer Science Living Learning Community (Busch Campus)

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.
