The Gender & Sexuality Living Learning Community is a community that is open to any student wishing to explore topics around gender identity and sexual orientation as continuums.

This Living Learning Community connects closely with Elon’s newly established Gender & LGBTQIA Center, full of resources devoted to students’ academic, personal, and social development. Academically, the LLC will closely connect with the work of the Women’s & Gender Studies (WGS) program.

Students explore linkages across personal lived experiences & theoretical concepts of gender and sexuality. Students will increase their knowledge and awareness of particular topics from evolving language terms to bias incidents to current events. There will be opportunities to attend campus-wide speakers on topics, including feminism, masculinity, and sexual identities. A feature of the learning community will be small-group reflection with fellow students.


The Gender and Sexuality Living Learning Community is located in Colonnades, Building A. The room options include single rooms with private baths and a pod of 4 single rooms with common space and two bathrooms, all on a floor with a shared lounge/study space and kitchen.

Limited scholarships are available for students with significant financial need who may also need to be assigned a single room. Please contact
