Freshman Living Learning Centers
The Freshman Living Learning Center is an option available to
students who have paid their enrollment deposit by February
1. They offer a unique academic/residential environment.
Freshman Living Learning Centers (FLLCs) are an exciting approach
to combining residential and academic life at the University.
If you paid your enrollment deposit by February 1, this option will
automatically be part of your online housing application.
Space is limited, so the sooner you finalize your online
application, the better your chances are at getting placed in an
FLLC. There is no additional charge for the FLLC unit.
Located in both Ross Hall and Schwitzer
Hall, the FLLCs give freshman the opportunity to connect,
learn from and socialize with faculty outside of the traditional
classroom. This opportunity is provided primarily by a
full-time Butler faculty member who lives in an apartment in the
residence hall, a Faculty In Residence (FIR). The FIR works
toward the integration of both the in and out of classroom
experience. Students work with each other and the FIR to develop
programs that enhance their academic, cultural and social
