Housing & Residence Life works collaboratively to create open, welcoming communities on Grounds for students at the University of Virginia. Residents are empowered to engage their potential as scholars and leaders through self-governance and participation in residential area activities and leadership.
From incoming first years and returning undergraduates to transfer students, graduate students, and faculty/staff, residents encounter inclusive environments supporting the University’s academic, cultural, and social goals.
"It's still crazy to me to think about how I didn't know anyone on my staff coming in - now I can't imagine life without them. Each of them brings something unique to the group dynamic, but the common denominators between us are what stand out the most to me. Consideration, sincerity, diligence, kindness. Being able to share this incredible experience with these individuals, to learn from them and to grow with them, is truly a privilege. While everyday as an RA poses new challenges, I find comfort in knowing that I'll never have to face any of them alone. To my wonderful staff, thank you for making Watson Webb a home."
