Special Interest Housing Communities

Special Interest Housing Communities
"My experience has been that of a family who lives and learns together and because of that, the Auburn Family becomes even more real to us."

Auburn Global

Auburn Global students are enrolled at Auburn from over 20 countries around in the world and live in Boyd and Sasnett Halls in the Hill residential area. There are many benefits to living with international students. First, if you are interested in developing friendships with students from other countries, studying abroad, or pursuing a career with an international audience, this experience will give you a great start. Second, as a Boyd or Sasnett resident, you can attend Auburn Global social events including karaoke nights, movie nights, ice cream socials, and more throughout the year. Lastly, Boyd and Sasnett Halls do not close for Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring breaks like other halls, so you can stay on campus during breaks at no extra charge.

Honors College

Living with other students who are members of the Honors College will deepen your experience and help you develop close friendships with Honors College students. During the 2018-19 academic year, Honors housing will be located in Aubie Hall (Village North neighborhood) or Broun Hall (Upper Quad neighborhood). First-year Honors students requesting to live in these ahlls must have a Honors roommate. The roommate may be one of your choosing or you may elect to have a roommate assigned to you. Honors College members who want to live with a student who is not a member of Honors College will not be assigned to Aubie or Broun Halls.

Residential Learning Communities

During the 2018-19 academic year, Auburn University will offer four Residential Learning Communities (RLCs) for incoming freshmen. Two RLCs will be affiliated with the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering, one with the College of Liberal Arts, and one with the Raymond J. Harbert College of Business.

Learning together: RLCs provide students with a residentially-based small group experience that enriches their in-class instruction and provides focused out-of-class activities. RLC members will live together in Teague Hall (Upper Quad neighborhood) and are co-enrolled in a First Year Seminar and two or three additional classes. Each RLC accommodates up to 19 students. Auburn’s First Year Experience office provides additional information about the RLC experience

Living together: When completing the housing application, students must indicate an interest in participating in a RLC and select the Quad as their first area preference in order to be considered for placement in a RLC. Due to space limitations, residents in Teague Hall must have a roommate who is also in one of the four RLCs. The roommate may be one of your choosing or you may elect to have a roommate assigned to you. The last day to change preferences to the 2018-19 housing application is March 1, 2018. Our How to Apply section provides additional information and important deadlines that must be followed to ensure your spot on campus in fall 2018.

Panhellenic Sororities

Upperclass students who are members of a Panhellenic Council sorority may live with other sorority sisters in Magnolia, Willow or Oak Halls in the Village South neighborhood. Each sorority is allocated 40 bed-spaces for its members and the sorority’s leadership decides who has priority to live in their chapter housing.
