UVA Neighborhood Details
The University of Virginia serves not only as a leading university in the nation, but also as the heart of Charlottesville. The lively neighborhood is home to the school, as well as top-notch shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions. UVa’s grounds themselves are a prime destination for locals, with beautiful walking paths, meticulously landscaped gardens, and the expansive Lawn for lounging. In fact, UVa remains the first and only American college to be named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Beyond campus, residential life is anchored by The Corner, which features seven blocks of predominantly local establishments. From sipping coffee to grabbing lunch, or even picking up a new wardrobe, there is no shortage of entertainment for residents both young and old. The area is also home to the prestigious Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia. Permanent exhibits feature more than 13,000 items, including works from Hogarth, Kandinsky, and Man Ray. UVa is also home to the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection, home to one of the world’s most extensive collections of indigenous Australian art.
Many of the neighborhoods around UVa are established, with homes featuring a wealth of historic character. Remodeled condos are also becoming increasingly popular in the area, as are new-build townhouses. Just like UVa itself, the surrounding residential neighborhoods offer a multitude of diversity and charm.
