It is considered an honor to live in one of the University’s prestigious rooms on the Range. Located in Mr. Jefferson's original buildings, the Academical Village, these single rooms are truly in the center of the University.
Living on the Range and in the Crackerbox rooms is reserved for graduate students who are enrolled full-time in a degree-granting program. Students must use their Range room as their primary University residence if selected. In addition, it is expected that students selected to live on the Range will live there for the full academic year (both fall and spring semesters).
Each room is furnished with a lofted bed with ladder above a daybed with cover, a secretary desk with chair, a hutch containing a refrigerator with freezer and a microwave, a built-in closet and sink closet, and a rocking chair. There are blinds on the windows, and all rooms have a fireplace. While no air conditioning, kitchen, or study lounges are available, students can find whatever is needed just a few steps from their doors. Also see the Range website for more information about living on the Range.
Starting in April, students who wish to live on the Range can apply through the Housing Application for Graduate Students. If you are a prospective UVA graduate student, your graduate school application must also be submitted to your prospective school of enrollment no later than April 1.
The rate for 2021-2022 is $7,670/academic year.
Notice to Range Residents: Please do not bring firewood from home! Due to the risk of infestation by the Emerald Ash Borer, all firewood must be purchased locally.
