Who We Are

The Promise Living Learning Community supports PROMISE scholars beginning their academic career during the summer B term. This LLC provides an extra layer of support in areas of individual growth, academic achievement, and exploring college life. Participants will engage in new learning opportunities, and collaborative activities!
  • Engagement

    Housing and Residence Life staff organize exclusive opportunities for PROMISE residents to connect and thrive within the Living Learning Community. Examples include the annual BBQ kick-off event, study nights, campus scavenger hunts, career fair, Gainesville buiness fairs, and coffee talks with Academic Support staff!

  • Campus Partner

    Our partnership with The Office of Academic Support at UF facilitates various study sessions and opportunities for PROMISE students to connect and thrive in an academic setting here at UF.

How to Join

Students are selected as PROMISE program participants through the University of Florida Office of Admissions. Once admitted via the PROMISE Program, these scholars are required to attend Summer B semester and to live in the selected residence hall designated for the Summer B PROMISE LLC.

Once selected for the PROMISE Program, students must apply for Summer B Housing and then sign their contract and pay associated fees through the Housing Management System (HMS) Portal.
The contracting process may change slightly each admissions/contracting cycle, and the most up-to-date information can be found at http://www.housing.ufl.edu/undergrad/apply/howto/.
