Live On Grounds

On-Grounds housing makes life at UVA simpler! See our Upperclass Housing page for details!


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.

In Their Own Words: Living On Grounds at UVA


We're excited to launch Connect2Grounds, a program created specifically for rising second-year students! 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!
