The newest residence hall on the University of Memphis campus, the Living Learning Complex (LLC), officially opened Thursday, Aug. 26, with a 1 p.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony presided over by Dr. Shirley Raines, U of M president, and Dr. Rosie Phillips Bingham, U of M vice president of Student Affairs. Immediate following their remarks, students began moving into the building, which will house Emerging Leaders, Honors students, music scholars, and ROTC students.

The building’s unique floor plan can house 496 students. Two four-story residential buildings are connected to a main entrance area between the two buildings. Each building has four floors, and each floor has three individual “neighborhoods” for residents. A neighborhood offers single and double rooms, five private baths, a community style kitchenette with microwave and sink, and two laundry areas. In addition, each floor has a lounge area where students can visit.

Entrance to rooms, neighborhoods, and the buildings themselves is available only by a secure card/key system. Each room’s heat and air can be individually controlled, and all rooms have wireless capability for students’ computers. Music students living in the LLC will also have exclusive access to music practice rooms on the first floor of the office building.

Residents of the new LLC will be among the approximately 2,700 students who will live in campus residences this year.
