GLOBAL LIVING LEARNING COMMUNITY

Exchange students are students who study abroad at Texas A&M for one or two semesters and then return to their home institution.

Roommates

Roommates and room assignments are a manual process determined by the Global LLC staff.

To foster a sense of community, Global LLC students will live in shared bedrooms (2 people per room) with shared bathrooms (2 rooms per bathroom). All efforts are made to pair students with roommates who are not from their home university or country. As much as possible, domestic students are paired with international students.
