Virginia Wesleyan’s campus is small by design, creating an intimate learning environment. Inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s concept of the academic village, our campus is comprised of four villages. Two of our four villages have residence halls, classrooms and faculty offices in the same building, fostering the close-knit community that exists at the College.
Have a specific question about our Residence Halls or want more information Contact the Office of Residence Life at 757.455.3295.
All rooms in each village have 2-in-1 units (refrigerator/microwave) or direct access to a full kitchen. You’ll also have convenient access to laundry facilities and vending machines, and there’s ample parking close to each village.
Rose, Kellam, Eggleston and Old Halls
If you’re a freshman, there is a very good chance that Bray Village will be your home. After class you will find students gathered in the lounge area talking, eating, laughing and sharing stories. Bray Village is one of the two villages on campus where residence halls, classrooms and faculty offices are located in the same building. Each floor has community showers and bathrooms. Rose Hall houses women only – all other halls are co-ed by floor.
Smithdeal, Gum, East and Johnston Halls
Set up exactly like Bray Village, Village II offers the opportunity to room with those who have similar interests as you. East and Johnston Halls house many of our Honors and Scholars students; and Smithdeal Hall is the Wellness Hall. If you enjoy socializing, but want a bit more privacy, East and Johnston Halls have two different floor plans: two double rooms connected by a bathroom, or a five-room suite with a kitchen and lounge area.
North, South and Teagle Halls, Apartments and Townhouses
Located in a wooded area back from the center of campus, Brock Village is almost exclusively for upperclassmen and returning students. Brock Village offers apartment-style, suite-style, and adjoining room living options. Suites and adjoining rooms offer students a bit more privacy than the traditional residence hall room and provide the opportunity for plenty of socializing, with a shared living space and laundry on each floor. Apartment living provides students with a private bedroom, shared kitchen and living room space, and access to lounges and laundry facilities on each floor. Additionally, the townhouses serve as our designated on campus Greek housing.
Broyles, DeFord and Hendrix Halls
Why rent a townhouse when you can live in Virginia Wesleyan’s newest village, Village IV? Comprised of six different buildings, each townhouse offers you the independence of living on your own, without having to pay for gas and drive to campus. Like the apartments and townhouses in Brock Village, you’ll have your own private room, a fully-equipped kitchen and essential furniture. Village IV is exclusively for upperclassman; however, two townhouses are set aside for top freshmen scholarship recipients.
Most rooms in Bray Village and Smithdeal and Gum Halls in Village II have the following:
