Students living at the Language Immersion Student Residence (LISR), located in the northeastern corner of campus, participate in a unique language immersion experience, the LISR Program, in conjunction with pursuing regular class schedules.

We invite you to step into another culture without leaving campus and take part in a most unique program. Hundreds of BYU students have immersed themselves in a new culture by becoming part of the LISR program. Just imagine what it could do for you!
