Room and Dining Rates

Academic Year Room and Board Rates

The academic year consist of  two semesters (fall semester and spring semester). Rates below are expressed as per semester rates.  Rates for summer sessions are listed separately as they are not part of the fall/spring semester rates.

The Residential Telecommunications Fee (wireless internet/data/cable) of $197/semester/person has been listed as part of the housing package in the past.  For more transparency and to better explain charges, this will be listed separately from housing on the university account.

The Living Learning Community fee is $100 annually and is charged to residents in the living learning community areas of Ambler Johnston (Honors Residential Community/Residential College at West AJ),  Harper (Mozaiko),  Lee (Galileo and Hypatia), New Residence Hall East (Orion), O'Shaughnessy (Leadership and Social Change Residential College), Payne (Meraki), and Pritchard (Thrive, Studio72, Innovate, Transfer Experience, and VIA Communities), and the SPEH (Transfer Experience) house.  This fee supports the cost of operating the program and events associated with the living learning community spaces.

The multiple-occupancy rate means cost per resident for shared residency of 2 or more residents per bedroom. Single-occupancy rooms are of extremely limited availability in undergraduate housing.  Most on-campus housing is double occupancy in the civilian areas and double and triple occupancy in the Corps of Cadets area.

Overflow Housing Credit

As indicated in the Housing and Dining Contract Terms and Conditions, some students who are assigned to overflow housing may be eligible for a credit on their housing charges as determined by the Housing and Residence Life office. Typically, these are credits applied to residents who are assigned to live with a resident advisor, are placed in a converted study lounge, or placed in a room configured for higher occupancy than the standard yearly configuration during an overage situation. When approved and applied, this credit has historically been approximately 20% of the semester rate prorated for the amount of time the student is in temporary/overflow housing.

Required Updates and Changes

Room and board Rates for the next academic year are posted after being approved by the Budget Office. The rates are typically posted in late spring semester.

Housing and Residence Life reserves the right to correct any billing errors and/or fees that do not match the established rates as set forth by the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors.
