The UGA Russian Flagship Living Learning Community, established in Fall 2020, provides a means for interested students to blend their residential and academic experiences in order to enhance the overall quality of college life and to explore and promote Russian language and culture through a simulated immersion environment. Residents speak Russian on a daily basis through spontaneous and organized activities and informal conversations. Russian Flagship tutoring sessions are offered on site weekly. Plans for additional residential activities include movie screenings, dinners, dances, socials, guest lectures, concerts, excursions, performances, and exhibitions.


UGA Russian Flagship Program students are encouraged, but not required, to live in the Russian Flagship Living Learning Community, as it provides additional opportunities to enhance students’ cross-cultural understanding and Russian language proficiency. Russian Flagship Living Learning Community residents must be enrolled in the UGA Russian Flagship Program.


The Community is located in Building 1516, one of UGA's newest and most modern residence halls, located near the Ramsey Student Center, Village Summit Dining Commons, Hugh Hodgson School of Music, Lamar Dodd School of Art, the Georgia Museum of Art, and the Intramural Fields. Visit Building 1516 now via the University Housing 360° Virtual Tour.
