Welcome to Richmond.

Combining the amenities of a major metropolitan area with the charm and convenience of a small historic city, Richmond provides an engaging backdrop for work, play and study.

Urban means access.

We have just about everything you could need in a city environment, plus the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, just a short road trip away.

Start at the Compass, the historic center of VCU’s Monroe Park Campus, and pick your mode of transportation. Here’s where the road might take you.
