TSVI residential students reside in a state-of-the-art residence hall on Christopher Newport’s campus. Our residence halls feature a computer lab, coin-operated laundry room, and a television and recreational lounge.


Residential students have their meals on campus in one of our exceptional dining halls. Menus vary, offering plenty of variety and options.


Athletic attire or active wear should be worn for workshop sessions, allowing for maximum movement (what you might wear to the gym). Close-toed shoes are required.


Casual attire should be worn while in attendance as an audience member at masterclasses or question-and-answer-sessions, plus meal times and all social functions. Gentlemen: pants, collared shirt, shoes. Ladies: pants / skirt and blouse, or a casual dress.


Professional attire, or business dress should be worn for masterclass performances, lesson times or for attending nighttime concerts by our guest artists. Gentlemen: coat and tie in any color combo. Ladies: professional pantsuit, skirt and blouse, or dress.


Concert attire may be worn for formal recital performances for which you are singing. Gentlemen: dark suit and tie. Ladies: simple gown, T-length or floor.


Please remember, these are general guidelines; there are many acceptable variations. A good general guideline is to ask yourself if your attire is appropriate for the activity level and whether it represents you in the most professional light.
