2021 Spring Only Housing Application

The Spring Housing Application is now open. Visit the Housing Application to apply. 

Who can apply?

This application is for students currently not living in on-campus housing and who wish to live in on-campus housing for the Spring semester. The application is open to current students and students who will be starting in the Spring semester. New students will need to accept the offer to attend VCU and pay their enrollment deposit before applying for on-campus housing.

Housing Options

VCU Residential Life and Housing offers traditional, suite semi-suite and apartment options. Please visit the halls page for more details.

Signing the Housing Contract

When a student completes the Housing Application, they electronically sign the contract at the end of the application process. Instead of signing a specific contract for a specific room, students sign a general contract for the academic year. Signing the Housing Contract does not guarantee housing or is considered binding until the student receives their assignment. To view the housing contract visit our resource page.

Room Assignments

Room assignments will begin Nov. 9, 2020, and will continue on a rolling basis. 


The cost of on-campus housing is equal to or less than most surrounding off-campus locations. To view rates please visit our page. 

Meal Plans

Students living in Brandt, Gladding Residence Center, Johnson and Rhoads are required to have a dining plan. Students will need to choose one of the “Required Plans” listed on bsv.vcu.edu/dining.

Renters Insurance
