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.
