Living Learning Center

The Luddy Living Learning Center, a residential community for first-year techies

As you consider IU housing, we think you’ll love one learning community in particular: the Luddy (LLC). Located in the Teter Quad, the Luddy LLC will help you start strong at IU, no matter your major.

Designed as a housing option for IU students who love technology, Luddy Living Learning Center residents can take advantage of special opportunities, like a trip to Silicon Valley.

Why live in an IU Living Learning Community?

Get a head start and make lifelong friends

In the Luddy LLC, first-year students who love technology, whether they’re pursuing a major in the Luddy School or elsewhere on campus, live together and participate in a community of peers that gives them an edge at IU and beyond.

The Luddy Living Learning Center will help you transition to college, succeed academically, and develop your career skills. Not only will you make friends who will support and challenge you throughout your life, but you'll have opportunities to connect with Luddy faculty and even potential employers.
