Eco House Learning Community

The Eco House Residential Learning Community is open to students in any major with a preference to those students in the Environmental Studies major.

Residential Learning Communities (RLC) allow you to live with other students sharing the same academic major or special interest. As an RLC member, you have the opportunity to attend social and academic programs with other students, interact with faculty outside of the classroom, and get to know an upper division Community Mentor who shares your major or interest area.

Residential Learning Communities (RLC) are located in one of 10 Freshmen Connection Halls and participants are eligible for priority room selection. Additional information regarding room and roommate selection will be sent to student NAU email accounts if you are accepted into the RLC.

Join this group if you want to:

  • focus on making positive environmental change through environmental research and education, community engagement, and personal
  • study your personal impact on the environment and use this knowledge to promote environmentally sustainable living within the university and Flagstaff community
  • meet other students and study buddies in environmental programs
