Hillside Hall


Incoming freshmen admitted to the Chinese Language Flagship Program who request on-campus housing are automatically eligible for assignment to the LLC residence hall. Placement in the residence hall is not guaranteed—rooms are assigned based on the date of receipt of housing deposit and space availability. Therefore, we encourage incoming freshmen to submit their housing deposit early.
