The Engineering Village @ The Commons is an Academic Residential Experience District for engineering students. This residential program is designed to be an extension to the classroom by offering academic, professional, and social support to engineering students who live in the community.

The Engineering Village provides an atmosphere that encourages students to: 

  • Strive for academic excellence
  • Develop a strong, cohesive support system that will serve them throughout their academic career
  • Recognize how academic and professional careers are interrelated
  • Discover what it means to be part of a community of scholars

Within the Engineering Village @ The Commons, the College of Engineering offers two living learning programs (LLP): the General Engineering LLP and the Engineering Honors Community of Scholars (ECOS) LLP.

Benefits in Living Learning Programs

  • Through your participation in this community, you will meet other engineering students with interests similar to yours, allowing you to develop a strong, cohesive support system that will serve you through your academic career.
  • You will receive assistance to help you achieve academic excellence through programs, such as peer tutoring located right in the residence halls.
  • In addition, you will have access to upper-level engineering students living in the halls who serve as Peer Mentors to help you navigate the university and assist you in becoming a part of a community of scholars.
  • Being enrolled in our living-learning program means you are more likely to remain in engineering than students who choose to live elsewhere on campus. 

Eligibility Requirements

To participate in the Engineering Village @ The Commons, students must: 1) have applied for and received admission to the College of Engineering or 2) have a major within the College of Engineering. Please note the following about our community:

  • The General Engineering LLP is restricted to engineering students. To reside within the community, you and your roommate must be enrolled in the College of Engineering.
  • The Engineering Honors Community of Scholars (ECOS) LLP is restricted to engineering honors students who complete the EH application by the March 1 priority deadline. To reside within the community, you and your roommate must be admitted to the College of Engineering’s Craig and Galen Brown Engineering Honors (EH) Program.
  • If an engineering honors student wants to room with an engineering student who is NOT in the EH Program, they have the option to “relocate” into the General Engineering LLP in April (prior to the room assignment process).

Peer Mentoring and Tutoring

Engineering Village offers residents access to peer mentors and peer tutors to support each student’s academic and personal growth.

Peer mentors are upper-class engineering students who live in the residence halls and help students navigate their first year of college. Peer mentors also plan and host engaging activities to help students get involved and have fun with other freshmen. 

Peer tutors are available five nights a week and are located right inside each residence hall. Tutors help students with first-year engineering, math and science courses, helping to guide the academic efforts of freshmen as they transition from high school to college.

Expanded Opportunities

Living learning communities work, and we want more students to experience the success associated with this program. This fall, we’ve expanded our program from one residence hall housing 900 students to multiple residence halls with the capacity to house up to 1,200 students. 

Cost

There is no additional cost for living in the Engineering Village. Commons and modular style residence hall rates are $3,532-3,600 per semester (2020-2021 rate).
