Themed Communities

Themed Communities are the perfect way for you to meet new friends and form a sense of community with people who have similar needs and interests! By living in one of these communities, you'll have opportunities to connect with students with similar interests, and make the most of your residential and academic experience here at St. Cloud State University.

Why should I participate? Research shows students who participate in themed communities communities are more likely to:

  • Stay in college
  • Earn a higher GPA
  • Complete more credits
  • Feel more connected to campus

Each community is slightly different — some have shared courses and enjoy close connections with academic departments and faculty, while others are based more on the needs and interests of students. These communities enjoy close partnerships with staff advisors and student organizations, and participate in co-curricular activities related to their shared interests.

Students can indicate interest in participating in one of our themed communities on their housing application in the Husky Housing Portal through eServices
