student in a residence hall

A comfortable living environment is an important part of your learning experience at the University of Richmond. With so many options in our residence halls and apartments, 92 percent of Richmond’s students choose to live on campus for their entire undergraduate education.

We’ve gathered important information on room selection, what you need to know if you are a new student and how to secure summer housing. And be sure to read up on our exciting themed housing options.

Room Selection for Fall 2015-16:  The housing deposit of $600 must be paid if you are going to participate in room selection.  The deadline for paying the Housing Deposit has been extended:  Payment must be received by Tuesday, March 3rd at 5:00 p.m.  The options for payment in StarRez are an electronic check or credit card (no fees).  If you prefer, you may mail a check to Box R, Student Accounts, 28 Westhampton Way, Richmond, VA 23173.  Indicate "Housing Deposit" on the check and your student's name and ID number.
