The mission of the Office of Residence Life and Housing is to foster community by celebrating the individual student through the encouragement of personal growth and development that embraces inclusion, encourages responsible leadership, and promotes an intellectual community.

End of Fall Semester Information/Winter Break Information:

All on-campus residential areas will close on Sunday, November 22 at 5pm.  More specifically, plans for end of the fall term are as follows:

Spring Housing Application and Information

Students who wish to be housed on campus in Spring 2021 should fully complete the Spring Application in the red bar in the StarRez Portal by November 1.

New first-year students are guaranteed on-campus housing and will receive information on their housing assignment by November 13 to their University of Richmond email address.  First-years will be housed in first year residential areas as space allows.

Returning students will be able to submit preferences for location and a roommate.  Returning students will receive their assignment information by November 20, as space allows since housing for returning students is not guaranteed.  Housing assignments for all returning students will be completed by lottery based on class year.
