What is Johnson House Like?

Johnson House provides air-conditioned single-and double-occupancy rooms (two-thirds are singles) that open onto a common hallway. Approximately 28 students live on each floor, sharing a common bathroom and two furnished lounges. This house allows students to come together for socializing or studying, combining community living with the privacy of singles. An upperclass Resident Advisor lives on each floor.

How the House Got Its Name

  • Petersburg, Va. native Nathan Edward Johnson became the first black faculty member at the University of Virginia in 1967. He served as Associate Director of the School Desegregation Center at the University, and was instrumental in easing the desegregation process throughout the south.
