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 undergraduate exchange students are listed under the Incoming Transfer Students link on the housing webpage. Graduate exchange students may apply for Graduate Housing but please note, priority is given to students who will be enrolled for the entire academic year.      

On-Grounds housing costs are listed on the Housing Rates page. Undergraduate students coming to UVA for a single semester will be charged half of 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 make arrangements to stay at a local hotel.
