In the KPC Residence Hall, we believe that learning should extend beyond the classroom, so we are happy to offer several Living-Learning communities that students can be involved in. These communities are designed to house individuals with common interests, backgrounds, and areas of study and help build connections between peers.
Gateway Scholars is designed with the intent to increase success for students moving from high school to college. This residential program effectively bridges student's academic and social lives by creating an academic cohort for students who live and learn together. For more information, visit our Gateway Scholars Page!
The Alaska Native Community is designed to give Alaska Native students the best opportunity to develop their own college experiences in a way that fits them best. Students will live, study and build relationships within a small, tight-knit supportive community that supports Native Ways of Knowing and promotes Native Values as they pursue their academic goals.
The Process Tech and Instrumentation Living Learning Community is a unique community
Kenai Peninsula College. As a community of learners, Process Tech and Instrumentation students who reside in the Living Learning community are given unique opportunities to expand their learning outside of the classroom through natural dialogue, study groups, guest speakers, faculty-led discussions and other activities.
While the KPC Residence Hall currently only offers three official communities, we
also have the ability
to form new and temporary communities based on student interests. Examples include
EMS (Paramedic/Firefighter), Non-Traditional Students, and Leadership & Service.
Outside of our Living and Learning communities we also offer a unique Substance-Free community. Students who choose to live in this community agree to abstain from the influence of alcohol and drugs while living in the community, and alcohol is not allowed anywhere within the quad. This provides a safe zone for students who may have struggled with addiction in the past or do not desire to have the influence of substances in their lives.
