City living

Virginia Commonwealth University lies at the heart of Richmond, Va. Our campus reflects the character of our host city by mixing modern, high-tech amenities with historical buildings and small-town charm.

One of the benefits of city living: You will never be bored. There’s always something to do in Richmond — check out one of the many annual events including the International Dragon Boat Festival, French Film Festival, Richmond Folk Festival, Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k and First Fridays Art Walk.

Live here

Living on campus or in the surrounding community offers students the chance to build lifelong friendships and lasting professional networks.
