Exchange students are eligible for residential (on-Grounds) housing at UVa. You can search available options and find information about applying for on-campus housing here. Housing options available to exchange students are listed under the “transfer student” link on the housing webpage.  In order to see specific costs you will need to "compare" 2 or more options.  When you click the compare button you will find the cost for the academic year listed.  Students coming to UVA for a single semester will be charged half the listed cost. 

When applying for housing you can select first, second and third choice options.  Please note, however,  that housing is NOT guaranteed.  Housing offers are made on a space available basis.  The housing office makes every effort to match students with their choice of housing, but cannot guarantee space will be available for all students requesting housing.

If you elect NOT to live in residential housing there are many options available off-Grounds near the University. Find information on a wide variety of off-Grounds accommodations here.

If you are planning to apply for on-campus housing please note when housing will be available for move-in. If you plan to arrive in Charlottesville before your residential housing becomes available you will need to contact housing directly to arrange for an early move-in or make arrangements to stay at a local hotel.
