Living Learning Community at the University of Bridgeport

Join a community in your residence hall!

We know that no two students are the same and each one has different needs and interests. The Office of Housing, Residential Life and Community Standards is pleased to offer a variety of housing options to suit the needs of our undergraduate residential students.
