In addition, there are intramurals, fitness programs, outdoor adventure trips and special sporting events.

While on-campus dining options abound, the variety of restaurants throughout the city of Richmond give the VCU community plenty of flavors to choose from. There are various shopping ranging from local boutiques to high-end stores.


VCU also offers first-year students the chance to live in residential villages where you’ll be next door or down the hall from students with similar interests or majors. In these villages — Artist’s Colony, Doctor’s Lounge, The Boardroom and Clinical Corner — you’ll experience faculty presentations, participate in field trips, take part in movie nights and guest lectures, and easily form study groups with your neighbors.

Our newest residence hall, West Grace Street Student Housing – South, houses students in the Academic Scholars Program in Real Environments — an innovative and comprehensive community engagement-focused living-learning program for sophomores.
