Community Policies and Housing Agreement

Students living with DigiPen Housing and Residence Life are expected to abide by all provisions of their Housing Agreement, Residential Life Handbook, and DigiPen Institute of Technology policies. Violation of policies may result in disciplinary action through the student conduct process. DigiPen Institute of Technology and DigiPen Housing and Residence Life reserve the right to add to or otherwise amend these policies as circumstances arise.

Themed Living Learning Communities

Themed Living Learning Communities (TLLC) provide a unique atmosphere for residents who share common interests and goals, as well as those seeking an opportunity to grow their knowledge in outside-the-classroom opportunities, specialized programming, and support networks. TLLCs are offered during the academic year and are not offered during summer terms.

DigiPen Housing and Residence Life is always looking for new ideas to best support its resident population. Do you have an idea for a future TLLC? Contact us at with any feedback you’d like to share.

Rainbow Themed Living Learning Community

The Rainbow Themed Living Learning Community (Rainbow TLLC) strives to host a supportive and welcoming environment for new residents who identify as LGBTQ+ or as allies of the community. Through educational opportunities and specialized programming, interested incoming first-time freshman can engage with peers within this community with the support of a Resident Assistant (RA) and staff advisor.

Those who join the Rainbow TLLC can expect to:

  • Attend unique programs and events led by the community’s RA centered around identity affirmation, discovery, and LGBTQ+ education.
  • Develop interpersonal relationships with peers who may have similar interests and goals.
  • Learn from local non-profits and organizations who support LGBTQ+ individuals and initiatives within the Seattle area.
  • Gain social support and discover professional development opportunities from DigiPen faculty and staff through opportunities exclusive to residents of the Rainbow TLLC.

Students accepted into the Rainbow TLLC must complete the following each academic year to be considered a resident in good standing:

  • Attend monthly education workshops throughout the academic year.
  • Attend two Rainbow TLLC events per semester.
  • Support and respect all members and the LGBTQ+ community across campus.

Ready to join? Those interested in living in or participating in the Rainbow TLLC should indicate this when submitting a DigiPen Housing application.
