Living & Learning Community

We are ready to welcome you into the College of Business and Analytics' family. SIU Carbondale offers Living Learning Communities (LLCs), special residence hall communities that bring college learning into the everyday lives of students. LLCs give students the opportunity to live in close proximity to others who share common interests and areas of study, and to have greater interaction with university faculty and staff.

Research indicates that students who participate in an LLC often have higher GPAs and are more likely to graduate on schedule. Students living in an LLC enjoy getting to know professors and classmates better‚ greater access to academic resources and specialized programs right in their residence halls.


The College of Business and Analytics (CoBA) has its own LLC located in Baldwin and Brown Halls. It’s located on scenic Thompson Point, overlooking Campus lake.

Students living in the CoBA's LLC enjoy all of the great benefits and are among the first to receive information about events, guest speakers, career opportunities and more.

Enjoy the Suite Life!

All students living in University Housing residence halls will be “living the suite life” in their own private room. Traditionally, two SIU students have shared a residence hall room. With this new initiative, two students will share a suite; two rooms adjoined by a bathroom. This added luxury will be provided at no additional cost. That means you’ll get a private room at the traditional double room rate. More information is available here.
