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!

Virginia Tech strives to help Hokies thrive and be well in mind, body, and spirit—so much so that entire departments are dedicated to this work.

If you are sick or wounded, or need medical care or immunizations, Schiffert Health Center is here for you. Check out all the services offered at the on-campus facility.

If you are struggling with your college life, a relationship, schoolwork, sudden traumatic event, or another worrisome issue, you can talk to a mental health counselor at Cook Counseling Center.

Cook offers mental health consultations and all kinds of clinical services to help students suffering with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, loneliness, or substance abuse. Online screening is also available to help you determine whether seeing a counselor might help you with depression, alcohol use, eating disorders, and anxiety.

This department works closely with the academic side of campus to ensure that your time at Virginia Tech is amazing—whether you have a disability or not.
