Counting down the days...

Hokie Bird

Are you counting down the days until you arrive at Virginia Tech? We are so excited for you to start your Hokie experience! This is a great place to start exploring. Be sure you’ve created your PID so when Orientation registration opens in March you’ll be ready.

If you haven’t already completed your Housing/Dining contract, go ahead and mark that off your to-do list. Even if you don't know who you want for your roommate, it's okay. You can complete the contract and come back later (worry free!). And be sure to check out Living-Learning Communities. They are a great way to ExperienceVT!

For most of the things you’ll need, you’re on your own, but there are several items you can get from university-approved vendor partners. Things like microfridges, safes, hutches, closet organizers, carpets, linens, and storage services are all available for purchase.

Make sure you plan out who is bringing the big things with your roommate. There’s no need for two microwaves…unless you both have an unquenchable desire for Easy Mac at the exact same time. Unfortunately, in that case, you’re out of luck. Check out the fire and safety regulations before you start packing (teaser: you can only have one microwave in a room).
