For current students

Applications for current students will open on October 18, 2019.

Current Virginia Tech students are eligible to:

  • Apply to join a Living-Learning Program (LLP) for the first time
  • Apply to return to their current LLP
  • Apply to switch LLPs

Applications are located under the “LLP Returners” section of the StarRez Application Portal. Current students may apply for up to 2 Living-Learning Programs.

NOTE: Galileo, Hypatia, Orion, and the Transfer Experience are not accepting applications from students not currently part of the program.

Applications are open October 18 - November 15, 2019.

Students will receive a decision by November 22, 2019.

For incoming 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.

We believe in giving students all of the information necessary for them to choose the community that is best for them. As a result, applications are reviewed in cycles.

If you are applying to more than one LLC, complete all applications by the deadlines. You can make your decision when you hear from all of the communities you are interested in. However, all LLCs are offered on a first-come first-served basis. If you wait to apply, the community you are interested in may already be full. When a community is full, an update will be posted in StarRez.

Communities fill up quickly, so apply today for the best shot at your first choice LLC!
