Beyond the Classroom
Your Keystone Experience

This is Home… On-Campus Housing


Living on campus is not only convenient, it offers an exceptional opportunity for finding friends and making important connections as you start college life. With more than 40 residence halls, including more than a dozen living-learning communities, we invite you to find a community where you live, learn, laugh, and launch your Virginia Tech experience. Click “Living Here” in the black navigation bar to explore all on-campus housing, as well as other tips and hints for life on campus and in Blacksburg. Welcome home, Hokies!

We want you to do more, be more, and aspire to become your best self through our Aspirations for Student Learning.

  • Commit to unwavering CURIOSITY
  • Practice CIVILITY
  • Prepare for a life of COURAGEOUS LEADERSHIP and
  • Embrace UT PROSIM (That I May Serve) as a way of life.
Everything we do is designed to point you toward a better understanding of these Aspirations, which, in turn will help you better understand yourself.

Now…we know what you’re thinking. “Whoa, whoa, whoa, DSA. That’s a lot to live up to. How will I keep track of all I learn and all I do at Virginia Tech?” Funny you should ask.

Your Keystone Experience will help you explore, practice, and live the Aspirations for Student Learning. It provides ways to record and reflect on your out-of-classroom experiences, and it gives you the opportunity to use the Aspirations to define and find yourself.

Our inaugural cohort of Keystone Fellows are shining examples of what your Keystone Experience could look like, but it’s all about self-authorship and discovery—so get ready to create your own Keystone Experience!
