Freshmen Interest Groups

Living & Learning Communities

If you're a first-time freshman at UW, we invite you to join a FIG, where you'll take three or four sections of linked or clustered courses for a semester, while living on a 'designated' floor in the UW residence halls with other FIG students enrolled in the same course sections.
FIGs are a friendly and fun way to begin life at UW. Instead of making your way through those first research papers, final exams, and study sessions alone, you'll be part of a community of learners, yet you'll maintain the flexibility to be independent too.

NOTE: We are no longer accepting FIG Applications. The Application has closed May 31, 2019 to allow for orientation registration in courses.

Take a Look at the Fall 2019 Offerings

To learn more about FIGs, look through the Fall 2019 choices. FIGs are generally designed to meet University Studies requirements, so even if you decide on a completely different major, most of the courses you've completed as part of the FIG will still satisfy courses required of all students as part of UW's general education program.
