The program will arrange your housing accommodations. This is helpful for the participants in many ways: no apartment hunting, no shared apartments, no rent, and a strong sense of camaraderie with roommates who are participants in the program and have similar academic backgrounds.
It is possible for you to sublease an alternative apartment; however, you must make alternative arrangements on your own. You would need to make a trip to Blacksburg prior to the starting date of the program to finalize your housing if you elect alternative housing.
The apartments are furnished with beds, desks, table, chairs, and an in-room sink. However, items like cutlery, cookware, and computers are not provided.

Living room: 1 sofa, 1 chair, 1 end table, 1 cocktail table, 2 lamps, television, TV stand.
