Apply for Housing

#UVA25 and incoming transfers! Apply for on-Grounds housing by the June 1 deadline!


Welcoming, Empowering

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.


Greeters Program Signups

Greeters volunteers are responsible for helping first-year students move into their on-Grounds housing during move-in days each August. The 2021 move-in dates for first-years are yet to be announced, but you can express your initial interest now -- and get first priority when signing up!

Starting in the 2021-2022 academic year, signature program events will be offered at two designated hubs: Johnson, Malone, & Weedon and Lambeth. Have the on-Grounds experience that wasn’t possible this year!
