There are many apartment complexes within walking distance or a short commute to the University. There are also limited on-Grounds options available. When in doubt about a particular rental location, take the time to ask other graduate students about their housing experiences in Charlottesville.
On-Grounds Housing for Single Graduate Students
The University reserves housing for graduate student housing in three areas. Copeley III is located across from the Law School in North Grounds, and offers apartment living with double-occupancy bedrooms. The Dillard residence hall is across from the stadium at the intersection of Alderman and Stadium Roads, and offers single-occupancy rooms in a suite style arrangement. The historic Range community and Crackerbox are located in the center of Grounds.
On-Grounds Housing for Graduate Students with Families
The University of Virginia offers two apartment communities to U.Va. Students with families. Copeley Hill and University Gardens both offer several apartment options, and are designed to provide quality economical housing in an atmosphere of community interaction.
Students with a spouse and/or children are eligible for Family Housing. Post-doctoral fellows, research assistants, research associates, and medical residents who are single parents or married are also eligible.
Note: Individuals living with you in family housing must be your financial dependents!
Off-Grounds Housing Office
If you need assistance in finding a place to live or people to live with, the Student Council's Off-Grounds Housing Office is a great place to start. Their mission is to educate students in the process of moving Off-Grounds and to serve as an advocate for the students with the local landlords.
