Residence Life

Living on campus is about comfort, convenience and community.


Five minutes. That's probably the longest it will take you to get to class from where you live on campus at Virginia Wesleyan College. That's because our campus buildings are centralized for convenience, allowing students the flexibility to schedule classes back-to-back and chat on the sidewalks with professors and friends. Whatever type of housing you're looking for – from community living, single rooms, suites with kitchens, to apartment or townhouse-style living, Virginia Wesleyan has a range of lifestyle options to fit your needs

All students are guaranteed campus-affiliated housing during their stay at the College. Virginia Wesleyan also has a residential requirement, encouraging students to make the most of their undergraduate experience by living on campus.*

Whatever you choose, Virginia Wesleyan is more than just a place to stay – it's your home away from home.

As you browse through our housing options, take a moment to get a feel for the choices available to you. Experience campus life through traditional housing in one of our 11 residence halls, connect with your peers in and outside of the classroom through a Living and Learning Community, or meet and live with students who share similar interests within a Freshmen Interest Group.

* Exceptions to the residential requirement are granted to students who live at home with a parent; aremarried; and/or are carrying less than a full course load. Students who have been residents of the Hampton Roads area of Virginia for the year prior to applying to the College have the option to commute.
