Summer Intern Housing

Short-term summer housing for students completing internships at UVA (not those enrolled in summer session classes) or individuals participating in UVA-affiliated summer programs is available from Monday, May 29, 2017 until Saturday, August 5, 2017. Please note that you must be at least 18 years of age to live on-Grounds in short-term summer housing.


UVA interns and participants in UVA-affiliated programs stay in air-conditioned accommodations in Faulkner Apartments. Each guest will have a single bedroom. Apartments contain four bedrooms, a shared bathroom, living and dining room, and full kitchen with stove, refrigerator, and sink. All apartments are furnished with a sofa, two arm chairs, coffee table, two end tables with lamps, and dining table with chairs.

Please note that bedrooms are not equipped with hangers, irons, ironing boards, hair dryers, or lamps (overhead lighting only). Guests are responsible for supplying their own bed linens, pillow, and personal toiletry items including shampoo, soap, etc. In addition, apartments are not equipped with cooking supplies. Guests are responsible for supplying their own pots, pans, plates, utensils, etc. 

Laundry facilities are available for the use of guests during the summer. Washers and dryers use Cavalier Advantage cards only, and are not coin-operated. Cavalier Advantage works as a declining balance account on your card, so funds must be available in your account. Individuals with a University-issued ID card may place Cavalier Advantage funds on their ID using one of the cash deposit machines on Grounds. Guests without a University ID may purchase a generic Cavalier Advantage card. Additional funds can be added using the cash deposit machines.

A list of locations to obtain a Cavalier Advantage card is available at this link.
