ure bound by a year long contract lol
LLP notifications vary by which cycle you apply. You can find the application timelines and notification dates here: https://llc.vt.edu/apply.html
During the 2019-2020 academic year, all of our first year students lived on campus besides 130 students. Those 130 choose to live off either to live with family, older siblings, or because they were not a traditional aged student. This past year we leased two hotels so we were able to house all of our first-years. We have no plans for leasing hotels in the near future. Additionally, we are in the process of building 5 residence halls over the next 5-7 years. Our newest will open fall of 2021
we apply to more than one llp?
LLP Room Assignments will occur in June
If you decide a LLP is not for you, you will be placed in general assignment housing.
yes, our housing contract is one academic year
Students choose all different types of options for what works for them off-campus. VT students can find information and support for that here: https://www.techoffcampus.com/
You can apply for up to three LLP communities at a time
That is, of course, after their first year if they decide they would like to move off-campus.
Is there an opportunity for freshman to move in early to campus?

@Nick yes, if you don’t have a roommate group you will be assigned a roommate
Oops…listen to Chelsea
Rowena, perhaps, the person was discussing the ability to apply for honors LLCs?
You would not get first pick over the normal selection process, but both Hillcrest and the HRC are honors living communities
Csegnari - to ensure the safety and security of our residence halls, we can’t publish blueprints for our rooms and halls at this time. Sorry about that!
Is everything on campus within walking distance from all the residence halls?

All halls are locked and students need to swipe their ID cards to enter if they live there

Nick - yes it will!
