Residential Living

Virginia Intermont College knows that living on campus is a valuable part of the college experience.  That’s why students have choices when it comes to residential living.  Options range from traditional residence halls to apartment-style accommodations which are available to sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

In addition to finding a sense of community and a welcoming atmosphere, students who live on VI’s historic campus often find that the experience results in:

  • greater connections to the full experience of college life
  • higher levels of participation in activities and satisfaction at college
  • easier access to academic services, dining facilities, and other campus resources
  • more opportunities to engage in intellectual conversations with students and faculty
  • higher grade point averages and graduation rates
  • new lifelong friendships.

For these reasons, students are encouraged to live on campus to make the most of their experience at Virginia Intermont College.

Residential Requirements

VI holds that community learning is essential to your education and thus requires students with fewer than 85 credit hours (junior status) to live in the residence halls or in other college housing options and strongly encourages all others to live on campus as well.  Exceptions to the residential requirements are for students who are married, live with a parent or guardian within commuting distance of the college, or are considered to be a part-time student (fewer than 12 credit-hours).  Students older than 21 years may also live off-campus.
