Housing and Sustainability


The University of Virginia requires all incoming First-Year undergraduate students to live on-Grounds. The University offers a number of different residence styles and locations for upperclass students though they are not required to live on-Grounds. Apartments, traditional hallway-style bedrooms, residential colleges, and language houses provide a wide variety of experiences for student living. Students in their final undergraduate year may also apply to live on the historic Lawn at the heart of Jefferson’s original university. We encourage you to investigate each option as you plan your university experience.


As a center of learning and a research institution envisioned by Thomas Jefferson as illustrating the “illimitable freedom of the human mind,” we recognize the need to lead by example. The University of Virginia is committed to providing all members of our community – especially our students, who represent the leaders of tomorrow – with the knowledge and tools necessary to address the environmental challenges facing us today.
