The Honors Residential Commons at East Ambler Johnston is a diverse community that welcomes University Honors students of all academic majors—freshmen through seniors and graduate students. Students must receive an offer of admission to Virginia Tech as well as an invitation to the University Honors program in order to apply. To be considered, students must enter the Honors application process and select the Honors Residential Commons in addition to signing a housing/dining contract to live on campus. Freshman applicants must also make a two–year housing commitment for the Honors Residential Commons to encourage a strong continuing community.
