Live and Learn Together

Connect your in- and out-of-class learning with our Living-Learning Communities (LLCs).

A room set up for a student to live in it in Massasoit residence hall.

You'll live in the same wing of Massasoit Hall and take courses with a cohort of students who are in similar majors as you during your first year at Springfield College. LLCs also allow you to connect with faculty members, as each LLC has a designated advisor. These communities link together your academic, social, and residential experiences.
