Pre-Quest Housing

Dear Highlanders,

On behalf of Radford University, we would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your family as you embark on an exciting new chapter in your academic journey. We are delighted to have you join our vibrant community of students, faculty, and staff.

We understand that the transition to university life can be both thrilling and overwhelming, and we are committed to supporting you every step of the way. As part of our dedication to fostering an inclusive and supportive environment, we are pleased to offer housing assistance for students and families who may require accommodation the night before the orientation.

We recognize that financial and geographic circumstances can pose challenges for some students and their families in attending campus events. Therefore, we are offering housing specifically to provide support to those in need. Pre-Quest overnight housing is space limited and prioritizes students traveling alone, students and families with financial need, and students and families traveling from more than 3-4 hours away.

To request overnight housing prior to Quest, we kindly ask that you complete our Housing Request form that will help us assess your eligibility based on financial need. The form can be found at this link here.

Requests will be reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis and notification will be sent to the student’s Radford email account. Please ensure you request is filled out no later than 5 days prior to your session.

If you have any questions or require further assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to our office at

Once again, welcome to Radford University, and go Highlanders!
