2021-2022 Housing Sign-ups

It's time to select 2021-2022 Housing Assignments! 

Housing applications and room selection will be made through the online housing portal utilizing your UVA Wise username, password and your student ID Number. Starting on Wednesday, March 3, 2021 at 9am, the Housing Portal will go live and you will be able to login, complete your application, select meal plan, and choose your room/roommate. 

A limited number of private or single rooms will be available in McCraray Hall at no additional costs. Those rooms are available on a first come, first serve basis. After the start of the academic year, should space allow, private or single rooms in other residential facilities (i.e. Asbury, Culbertson, Henson, Still and Thompson) may be declared for an additional fee. 

All students, whether currently residential or not, are eligible to apply for housing during this time. 

You can find full details regarding the Housing Sign-Up process, including a timeline, here
