Warren Transfer Living Learning Community (LLC)

We are excited to offer a first-of-its-kind at UC San Diego exclusively for Warren Transfer Students: A dedicated Living Learning Community (LLC) where Warren Transfer students are able to live and learn together in the same community within their home College. Transfer students will get the opportunity to live with one another, take cohort classes, and build a community. Transfer LLC residents will occupy the middle floors of Brown Hall, a 100-bed residential building comprised entirely of apartment-style single rooms with communal lounge spaces. The community will be comprised of up to 51 Warren Transfer students plus one Resident Assistant who ideally is also a transfer student.

What You Get Out of Participating in the LLC

Students will be able to build a sense of community and connect with other Warren Transfer students.

What Will Be Expected of You for Participating in the LLC

You will be in a cohort-based curricular model with the same groupings of residents traveling as fellow students through three skill-building courses:

  • Fall Quarter: Warren Writing 100, a 20-student rhetoric and composition course that is part of the general education requirements for all Warren transfer students [4 units]
  • Winter Quarter: Transfer Year Experience (TYE, a.k.a. WARR 2), a lecture course with small discussion sections designed to acquaint transfer students with campus resources and research opportunities [2 units]
  • Spring Quarter: a new Financial Literacy and Career Readiness course (WARR 101) developed in consultation with the Career Center and the Financial Aid Office (1 unit)

Returning students who have already taken any of the above courses will instead assume leadership/mentorship positions if available.

  • Deepen your sense of campus belonging, college connection, and community building
  • Maximize your co-curricular and social experience during your time as a Triton
