Living on Campus

When you think about your hopes for your college experience, you envision a life full of new learning experiences. Living on campus gives you the opportunity to enhance the learning going on in the classroom to your on-campus living experience. The Thompson Learning Community Scholars who live on-campus will have the opportunity to live in a TLC residential community in Maverick Village or University Village.

What is a residential community and why would I want to live there?

Residential communities are composed of students who live together in a residence hall and have a common interest that serves as the central theme of the community (In this case, TLC). With the help of trained residence hall staff members, students structure programming and community standards to promote their community's purpose. Research has found that if you live in an on-campus living/learning community:

  • You are more likely to make better grades than your peers living off campus
  • You are more likely to stay in college and graduate
  • You will feel more comfortable approaching faculty members
  • You are more likely to participate in extracurricular activities
  • You will be more satisfied with your overall college experience

As a member of the TLC residential community, you can hold study groups with your classmates in your residence hall, hold social programs down the hall, and have access to peers in the TLC program on a regular basis! It’s a win/win situation!

To register for on-campus housing and apply to live in the TLC residential community in Maverick Village or University Village, please apply at the On-Campus Housing website. Make sure you list that you have received this scholarship on your application, so you will be considered for the living/learning community in Maverick Village or University Village.
