Online Programs Students Looking for Alternative Intensives Lodging Options for Intensives

Intensives Lodging Options for Our Online Degree Program Students

Some of Liberty’s online Master’s Degree and online Doctoral Degrees require intensives. Students pursuing one of our online degrees that require on-campus intensive courses have the option to choose from either Liberty's intensives housing packages or book independently for housing accommodations. Students pursuing one of Liberty University’s degrees online are just as important to us as our residential students. For this reason, we seek to provide a variety of housing options for our students that bests fit their needs.

Please note that hotel and other lodging options given are only meant to serve as suggestions and are not necessarily endorsed by Liberty University. When choosing lodging accommodations, students mostly interacting with one another in online classes should look for hotels with available shuttle services if they do not plan to drive while in Lynchburg.

What Does the Intensives Housing Package Include?

In order to best accommodate our online degree program students, we have sought out the best method of making the intensives experience an enjoyable one. To achieve this, Liberty University has collaborated with a local hotel to provide convenient and affordable housing packages for students seeking to complete their online master's programs and online doctoral programs.

Liberty has raised the bar for our students, as many other online universities requiring on-campus intensives do not offer this kind of housing accommodation package. Students pursuing one of Liberty University’s degrees online will be able to pay a fee combining the cost of hotel, meals, and shuttle and hospitality services posted directly to their student account.

Check out details on our Off-Campus Week-long Intensive Package and our Off-Campus Weekend Intensive Package.

Intensive Courses at a Christian University

Intensives are weeklong or weekend on-campus classes where students pursuing one of our degrees online are given the availability of professor and peer interaction. Some of our Online Master's Programs and Online Doctoral Programs have degree tracks that require or offer optional residential intensives.

Students will attend their intensive course on campus. This is a great time to explore your campus and immerse yourself in the Liberty atmosphere. This variant of your Christian college online experience allows you to have the opportunity to interact with professors face to face and gain a higher level of quality in your education. Students mostly interacting with one another in online classes will now be able to interact with fellow classmates face-to-face while attending these on-campus intensives.

Visit our Liberty University Travel Services for Negotiated Rates!

Students coming to campus for an intensive have the ability to book local hotel accommodations, flights, or car rental needs through our Liberty University Travel Services. In order to better serve you as you prepare to attend your intensive course, Liberty University has provided students access to negotiated rates with local hotels and businesses.
