  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

4.00 Average Rating
UVA is an amazing school, and the wide array of classes and activities will allow anyone to find a niche. Additionally, there is both a strong emphasis on academics as well as a surprisingly vibrant party scene (if that's your thing). However, due to the competitive nature of applications, academics can feel a little competitive at times; however, nobody is actively working against you.
Chris from Germantown, MD
UVA is the perfect combination of the opportunities of a big state school and the community feel of a small town! Students here really value their education but also love to socialize and have fun. We respect our honor code, our faculty, and each other!
