Housing for Transfers

I understand there's been some concern about housing for incoming transfers. We've heard from callers that they've run out of space for you. This is not the case. We had to do some investigating and spoke to the people in the housing department.

We will have more than enough space for transfer students, although not enough space for everyone to receive an offer in the initial round of assignments. Believe it or not, construction on a first-year dormitory is in it's final stages and the housing office decided to hold spaces in upper class housing until that the building is completed. If you are on a housing waiting list, you will be eventually offered housing. It is just not true that there won't be enough space for you.

Latest news on waitlist notification

Hello All,

We know it has been a very, very long wait. We appreciate your patience. The great majority of you will recieve wait list decisions next week. Unfortunately, it is my understanding that this will not appear online. However, you will be notified by mail in the next few days.

Best of luck!

If you have been admitted...

please be patient when it comes to courses showing on ISIS or your VISTAA report. Registrars are currently combing through every single course on every single transcript for 500+ students. As you can imagine, this takes time. Everything will be up by the time you come to Orientation.

And now for something a little different

Please follow this link to find a story about a former transfer student. He transfered to UVA a couple of years ago and graduated Phi Beta Kappa on May 18. I'll call it a little taste of the students you'll come across at UVA. Enjoy!
