New Living Learning Community called REACH

Jumping students

For incoming first-year students

Applications for living-learning communities can be completed once an incoming student has accepted their offer of admission from Virginia Tech and paid the matriculation fee. At that time, a housing contract will be made available to eligible students. A component of the application is expressing interest and applying to living-learning communities. Students may apply for up to three living-learning communities as part of the housing contract process.

Once you have accepted your offer of admission to the university, we encourage you to apply to a living-learning community through the StarRez Application Portal.

For current students

The 2020-21 application process for current students is now closed. The 2021-22 application cycle will begin for current students in October.

For transfer students

Due to limited on-campus spots for transfer students, any transfer students seeking to live on campus must follow these steps:

  • Apply to the Transfer Experience LLC
    • If accepted, you will receive a housing contract and are required to live in the Transfer Experience LLC designated spaces.
  • If you do not want to apply to the Transfer Experience LLC, you can place your name on the housing waitlist.
    • If taken off the waitlist, you can apply to up to 3 LLPs other than Transfer Experience.
    • If you are not taken off the waitlist and not accepted to Transfer Experience, you will have to seek off-campus arrangements.
