AdvantageVT students should apply online through the StarRez Portal. Students must create their PID and password before applying for on-campus housing.


Homestay, or accommodation with a U.S. host, is available. Placement may be arranged in advance to be available upon arrival. Accommodation consists of a private furnished room (single occupancy) in a home.


Most Virginia Tech students live off campus. Students who bring their families are required to live off campus. Many apartments are within walking distance of campus or are on town bus routes. Almost all apartments come unfurnished.
