peritchard hall

Pritchard Hall is located on the back side of campus, across from Cassell Coliseum and the Washington Street Tennis Courts. Close proximity to McComas Hall, Dietrick Dining Hall, and West End Dining Hall make Pritchard a convenient location for living on campus. Rooms are approximately 12' by 14' and include twin beds, desks, chairs, dressers, storage shelves, a sink, and mirror. Pritchard does not have air conditioning and features hall bathrooms.

Pritchard is home to three living-learning communities: Serve, Thrive, Innovate, and Studio 72, opening fall 2017. Learn more about these communities below. 

Innovate Mark

Budding entreprenuers of all walks of life will find their home on campus with Innovate. Heavily focused on collaboration, application, and real-world experience, Innovate will prepare you to take hold of your time at Virginia Tech and make the most of it. The Pamplin college of business is an important partner for Innovate, and faculty support/interaction is guaranteed. 

Serve Mark

Ut Prosim runs deep with the SERVE living learning community. SERVE compliments your academic experience with service learning trips, service-centric community building, and frequent involvement with the Town of Blacksburg, the New River Valley, and beyond. With VT Engage as a key partner, you'll learn service isn't just about leaving things better than you found them-- its about service to others as a way of life. 

The artist’s most creative work is made where they can explore their art freely. At Studio 72, our philosophy is that time and space to create art is the key to tapping into that creativity. Here students come to understand the arts as essential to the human experience through exclusive access to studio space in the residence hall, arts workshops with faculty, and visiting artists on campus. This interdisciplinary, multigenerational community has a strong academic commitment to learning through the shared experience of art making in a variety of disciplines and mediums. Whether it’s performing arts, visual art, digital art, or somewhere in between, Studio 72 is a living-learning community where curiosity, innovation, imagination, and creating art are a way of life. 

Thrive Mark

Understanding who you are and who you want to be is one of the most important parts of the college experience. In Thrive you'll find these answers by learning about what you're good at, where your strengths lie, and how you can harness your talents to flourish both academically and personally at Virginia Tech. You won't just be surviving, you'll be THRIVING.
