Graduate Family Housing

Looking for graduate family housing that's convenient, affordable, and supports the lifestyle you're looking for? These apartment complexes designate units for grads and their families because they know that not everyone wants to live next door to Joe Undergrad. Each complex offers unique amenities with grad families in mind. Getting around is never a problem because campus and downtown are always nearby, and Blacksburg Transit makes the New River Valley your neighborhood. Several of these properties are as close to the academic core of campus as other universities’ on-campus graduate family housing units. Blacksburg is rated as one of the best places in the United States to live -- a welcoming small community, intermeshed with a major research university. If you want graduate family housing, let the management staff at these properties show you what they've got to offer.
