  • CHALLENGE yourself to learn more
  • GAIN leadership experience
  • NETWORK with other students interested in similar career paths

Who Can Join a LLC?

Fairmont State University is excited to announce our LLC housing options.

  1. Honors- In order to be a member of the Honors LLC, students must be admitted into the Honors program. Check out the Honors Requirements Page for information on being admitted to the program. 
  2. National Security and Intelligence and Political Science (NSI/PoliSci)- In order to be a member of the NSI/PoliSci LLC, students must have officially declared a major in either field of study. You can find out more information about these programs on the College of Liberal Arts Page
  3. Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM)-  In order to be a member of the STEM LLC, students must have officially declared a major in one these fields of study. You can find more information about these programs on the College of Science and Technology Page. 

How Does One Apply to be a Part of a LLC?

An entire page of the housing application is designated to joining an LLC. Simply select your LLC preference on that page. Once you select your preference please contact our office at to be placed in the designated LLC. This is an option for all students. As an example, if you are an STEM student, but would prefer to live in a University Terrace Semi-Suite, you can opt not to join the STEM LLC. Although we believe that LLCs are beneficial to all students who join, it is not a requirement. Some of our LLCs have deadlines, so don't forget to apply early!
