Life in the city

Virginia Commonwealth University sits in the heart of Richmond, or RVA as we like to call it. The capital of Virginia, Richmond is a thriving urban community full of arts, culture, history, nature and more. Home to seven Fortune 500 companies, the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, and state and federal government agencies, the city provides VCU students with opportunities for internships and employment beyond graduation. No matter what your passion, you will be able to satisfy it here. It may be hard for you to do it all, even in four years!
