Learning Communities are a way to connect your living and learning experiences at Texas Tech University and can assist in your transition to college life.

Our Learning Communities (LCs) are unique and transformative communities where students seeking similar academic goals can live, learn and play together. At Texas Tech, we currently have 17 Learning Communities where over 4,000 Red Raiders (about 1/2 of our population) reside. Our LCs have designated residence hall floors led by Community Advisors (CAs) who offer tailored programming for your specific academic and personal needs. Our CAs are usually members of the same program too!
