Brand new this year, the Creativity and Innovation District!
New in 2021-2022, we will launch the Creativity and Innovation District, which combines all the best parts of Living-Learning Programs at Virginia Tech. Residents will enjoy a brand-new, state-of-the-art residence hall, flourish under the direction and support from a Faculty Principal, and have the ability to specialize in Living-Learning Communities located within the broader CID! Learn more here.
Residential Colleges transform learning by focusing on the interdisciplinary connections between students. Students get the benefits of a liberal arts education within the context of a global land-grant university. Led by live-in Faculty Principals, residential colleges welcome students from any major and year — and create a culture in which both tradition and innovation are celebrated.
Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) are niche communities where you can live with students around a particular theme--like arts or well-being--or live with students in a similar population group--like engineering or first-generation students. Each LLC is led by a Virginia Tech faculty or staff member, known as Program Director who is very involved in the life of the community and helps plan events that relate to the focus of the LLC. Make the most of your Virginia Tech experience by joining a Living-Learning Community.
