GLLCGlobal Learning Living Community

As a U.S. or international undergraduate student, you can choose to live in the Global Learning Living Community (GLLC), an international learning environment on the University of Dayton campus. Located in Caldwell Apartments, members of the GLLC participate in a variety of community and relationship building activities where you engage with students from around the world. 

As a member of the GLLC, you are a leader in sharing global education with the UD community. Join a global environment with others who share a common passion for international awareness in their own lives.

The Global Learning Living Community is a unique community which brings together U.S. and international students to live and learn from one another’s unique perspectives. Members of the GLLC are student leaders on campus for global education. Students live together at Caldwell Apartments, in an environment which supports and nurtures students’ international and intercultural interests.

 The GLLC seeks to:

  • develop intercultural competence and sensitivity among residents;
  • educate residents for global citizenship; and
  • help residents develop relationships with friends from different cultural backgrounds.
