Casa Maderni is Virginia Tech’s internationally based living-learning community in Riva San Vitale, Switzerland where students live and learn alongside our local and university partners in the Ticino region and in our broader European context.
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, such as engineering or first-generation students. Each LLC is led by Program Directors, who are engaged in the life of their communities. Make the most of your Virginia Tech experience by joining a Living-Learning Community.
