All About

Living In Virginia Commonwealth University, VA

Virginia Commonwealth University, portions of which were established in 1838, has grown into the most populous university in the commonwealth. Today, more than 32,000 students attend VCU, and reside in student housing. A public research university, VCU centers student living at two campuses in Downtown Richmond. The school officially became recognized with the merger of the Richmond Professional Institute and the Medical College of Virginia in 1968, though its Medical Center opened as a department of Hampden-Sydney College more than 170 years ago. Many students are attracted by the university’s unique programs, high level of research activity and location in an urban center. The Monroe Park campus, located west of downtown, and the Medical College center, comprise the main VCU campus. Currently, on campus student housing accommodates fewer than 5,000 students, and about 88 percent of the student body resides in a university apartment or off campus housing.

VCU offers baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral degrees, pre-professional programs and certificate courses through 15 schools and colleges. More than 40 of Virginia Commonwealth University’s programs are unique to Virginia, including the Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness major and the Real Estate and Urban Land Development degree. In total, students may choose from among 170 certificates and degree programs at a variety of advancement levels. In addition, research has become a cornerstone of student living, and in 2010 the university was awarded more than $82 million in National Institutes of Health funding, the second highest amount among universities in Virginia. For the 2012 school year, the U.S. News and World Report ranked VCU 94th among all public colleges and universities in the country.

The university’s main campus puts students in position to rent off campus housing near several downtown Richmond attractions, including Monroe Park, the Landmark Theater, and a row of restaurants along Laurel Street.
