About Housing & Residence Life

A tree with yellow and orange leaves stands in front of one of the residence halls on Virginia Tech's campus.

Housing and Residence Life at Virginia Tech is a large organization of dedicated professionals that operate 50 on-campus residence halls housing nearly 10,000 residents.

More than just a place to sleep, the on-campus experience is enriched by the initiatives and engagement of our resident student staff (such as resident advisors and house supervisors) and our live-in professional and para-professional staff (residential learning coordinators) who live in the residence halls. We have many other faculty members involved in Living-Learning Programs throughout the residential system. To support such a dynamic environment, HRL has a complete facilities operation (maintenance, housekeeping, lock shop, renovations, fire/safety compliance, warehousing), an occupancy management (assignments, contracting, communications and general services), and a robust conference management area (summer conferences and guest dining plans for groups coming to campus).
