Your Connections

The College for Living prides itself on creating a welcoming, friendly environment and supporting peer relationships. Our mentors help students develop a network of support both within the College for Living and in the greater Louisville community. After all, part of the college experience is about making connections that last a lifetime.

Your Campus

You will live on your own, but you are not alone. Each student has a one-bedroom apartment with kitchen and living room. There are also large community indoor and outdoor spaces for you to spend time as you choose. Our campus is wheelchair accessible. 

​The College for Living is located in Louisville, Kentucky near many resources and recreational opportunities, including shopping, entertainment, grocery stores, dining, Norton Healthcare, Bellarmine University, and easy access to TARC transportation route.

Your Classes

You, the students, along with our educators, direct the program through the College for Living Advisory Council. Every student living on campus is a member of the Advisory Council and has input on course topics and goals.

Your Experience

Each student at the College for Living has a unique schedule based on his or her needs, interests, and abilities. We offer you a path to independence through weekly classes and one-on-one support from life skills mentors. Mentors are present in four hour sessions daily to provide support, skill building, and education. You will also have access to our 24 hour helpline for support and emergency situations.
