Virginia Commonwealth University is a vibrant, welcoming community.
It’s a place where you can be yourself or figure out who that self is. The best way to do that is to meet other people. People with similar interests, people who are completely different, people you’d never meet otherwise.
They’ll make your college experience meaningful and help you be a part of something bigger than yourself.
Boredom is not an option
You’ll discover things you love to do here, and you’ll find others who love those things, too.
If being active and staying fit is important to you, you’re in luck. We offer workout facilities, pools, intramural sports, club sports, exercise classes and much more. Rec Sports’ Outdoor Adventure Program features trips, gear rentals and a bike shop. Get moving.

Catch the Ram spirit
There’s no place quite like VCU. We celebrate the little (and big) things that make us different from the pack. And when we get together, well, let’s just say we get rowdy and leave it at that.
