Arts Living Learning Community


The Arts Living Learning Community (ALLC) is for first-year students majoring in the Arts - visual arts, music, creative writing, theatre, or film.

Living
The ALLC is located in Ottawa House East, the newest residence hall on campus.  The ALLC area includes an art studio, piano practice room, library, and a computer lab.  In the ALLC, you'll have plenty of opportunities to get to know other aspiring artists, writers and musicians, who will be your roommates. Ottawa East offers residents and ALLC members a suite-style room with two double bedrooms, a furnished living room and a bathroom. View a room layout.

Learning
As an ALLC resident, you'll enroll in the Arts Living Learning Forum Interdisciplinary Studies 1000 (1 credit hour) in both fall and spring semesters.  This one credit hour class meets once a week in the Ottawa House and is just for ALLC residents. 

This class not only fulfills UT core requirements, it also will help you explore your interests in the arts and see how all the branches - music, visual arts, acting, film, creative writing - are connected.

Additionally, you will have opportunities to learn outside of the classroom with opportunities to attend concerts, films, theatre performances & visual arts events both on and off campus.

Community
Become a member of the ALLC family and share your talents and interests with follow artists.  The ALLC encourages students to realize their potential as artists and celebrate diversity. Living in the ALLC is an opportunity to make your first year at UT exciting, supportive and unique.

There is a $100 per semester programming fee for ALLC members.
