Grow and celebrate together
Unidos means "united" in Spanish. This LLC creates a strong foundation for you as a first-year Latinx-identifying student by providing a platform for you to feel comfortable to challenge yourself as you transition to college.
This community brings together Latinx students from all walks of life and was founded by the advocacy of Iowa Latinx students with the goal of supporting their transition to the University of Iowa.
This Living Learning Community requires students to take an academic course connected to the community. You will be pre-enrolled in the LLC course, which will be included in your academic schedule prior to summer orientation.

This community is open to any student who identifies as: Latinx
"I love that the Unidos Living Learning Community is a space on campus where students can thrive personally and cultivate a sense of community within the Latinx identity!"
"Choosing to be involved in the Latinx community at Iowa, is one of the best decisions that I have ever made. I instantly was able to feel at home on campus by being able to relate to the music, food and people on my floor. Finding a place where I can be my truest self has helped me navigate the transition to college. I am so grateful that this community has helped shape me into the leader that I am today."
"The University of Iowa’s Latinx community is small, yet we are prideful, outspoken and resilient. Since coming to Iowa, the Latinx community has been my home away from home and the community lets me know that together we are Unidos!"
