How to apply

Any admitted IU undergraduate student can apply online to live in the Global LLC. Applications to the Global LLC are accepted on a rolling basis. To apply, you must complete an RPS Housing contract and application, as well as a Global LLC application. Be sure to select the Global Living-Learning Center as your first choice.

The RPS Housing Contract and Application is the place to go if:

  • You need to fill out an RPS housing application and a Global LLC application.
  • You have already completed an RPS housing application and want to switch your housing to the Global LLC.
  • You already live on campus and want to switch your housing to the Global LLC.

Living here

Global LLC residents are selected on the basis of academic background, intellectual curiosity, international interests, experiences, aspirations, and a commitment to contributing to our community. Our students are actively involved in the Global LLC's governance, and in shaping its curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities. There are several opportunities to develop and showcase leadership skills within this very diverse community. To help support these activities, our students pay a $100 activity fee that is charged by Residential Programs and Services to the bursar bill.

In addition to the required Q class (GLLC-Q199), which introduces you to the community and global citizenship, the Global LLC also sponsors events focusing on language instruction and practice. Informal chats, film and video series, international guests, special interest groups, workshops, meals, and many other activities contribute to the Global LLC's atmosphere. We also offer a supportive environment for international students pursuing their degrees at IU Bloomington, as well as for students planning for or returning from study abroad. Faculty, graduate students, and staff with international interests and expertise teach courses, provide academic and social support, and interact informally with residents.

Like all of IU's living-learning and thematic communities, the Global LLC personalizes our large university, breaks down walls between living and learning, and promotes intellectual growth through engagement with learning. Residents of the Global LLC will shape their community and become better prepared for life in our globalized world.
