Residential Life and Housing

Mission Statement

Residential Life and Housing at VCU provides safe, inclusive, and well-maintained facilities where we work together to build intentional communities to empower residents in their academic excellence, citizenship, and personal growth.


Residential Life and Housing encompasses five units: Administrative Services, Business and Personnel Services, Facilities and Event Services, Residential Initiatives and Residential Life. Each of these areas is essential in providing a comprehensive residential experience. Our mission is to provide safe, inclusive and well-maintained facilities where we build intentional communities to empower residents in their academic excellence, citizenship and personal growth.

On-campus living creates an environment to help students succeed. Not only is on-campus housing steps away from academic resources, but living among classmates makes it easier to connect with friends, host study groups, or simply share resources. We offer a variety of on-campus housing options for both first-year and upper-class residents. On-campus housing offers more than just a place to sleep: it is an integral part of the VCU experience.
