Learning Communities Housing and Residence Life Furman

Our learning communities provide a unique experience that allows students to live together and study a common area of interest. We have three programs—Engaged Living, the Greenbelt Community and language houses—that are available to residents. Each of these housing options encourage residents to meet new people in a close-knit community, and take an in-depth look at a particular topic.
