SPECTRUM LIVING LEARNING COMMUNITY
About the Community
Students in the Spectrum Living Learning Community will have the opportunity to excel academically by sharing knowledge and experiences, build a social skill set, and participate in engaging activities and events all while developing connections with peers and resources across campus. Spectrum welcomes all students with a connection to the Autism community. Students participating in Spectrum may be individuals with Autism or simply have an interest in Autism Spectrum Disorders.
The Spectrum LLC allows students to surround themselves with others who are connected to or interested in the Autism community. Students will participate in both academic and social programming and interact with staff members who can direct them to academic supports and university resources as needed.
To be a participant in the Spectrum LLC, students must:
- Be enrolled or considered as a full-time student at Texas A&M University.
- Have an interest in Autism Spectrum Disorders, but are not required to be on the autism spectrum to live within the community.
- Uphold community standards (some of which may be different from other communities).
*Exemptions may be requested through the Department of Disability Services or the program administrator listed below.
Auto-assigned to a room within one of the buildings based on roommate questionnaire, including roommate preferences. Then, there will be a time period specified in the acceptance letters for members to change their room assignment within the community via the myHousing Portal – if desired.
