Nearly 80 percent of Virginia Commonwealth University freshmen say it’s a good choice to live on campus. VCU’s residence halls — six are freshman-only — come in all shapes and sizes and are equipped with basic furniture, laundry, lounges, high-speed Internet, air conditioning and 24-hour security. Traditional dorm-, suite- or apartment-style residence halls are available.
Now you’re home
VCU also offers first-year students the chance to live in residential villages — Artist’s Colony, Doctor’s Lounge, The Boardroom, Clinical Corner — where you’ll be next door to students with similar interests or majors.
Our newest residence hall, West Grace Street Student Housing – North, houses students in Globe, a living-learning program emphasizing global education and citizenship. Across the street, ASPiRE, which opened last year as VCU’s first-ever living-learning community, focuses on deepening students’ community engagement.
If you’re ready to live on your own, VCU’s Off-campus Student Services can help you find an apartment, a room for rent or a roommate in one of the close-to-campus neighborhoods.
