The Honors Residential Commons and the Hillcrest community are open to Honors students from all majors, years, and interests. Students in these communities engage in activities and experiences in an environment that allows members to learn from each other.

Students in Hillcrest Honors are part of a tight-knit community and are supported by academic, intellectual, and social programming each semester. Along with living in community with other honors students, you'll have access to exclusive programming and academic support designed to help you thrive at Virginia Tech.

Honors College students may apply for residence through the Living Learning Community (LLC) application – see the applications page for specific deadlines. You must be a member of the Honors College to live in Hillcrest.
