Student life

When classes finish up, the more than 400 student organizations will keep you busy. If you can’t find your niche, create your own club with help from the Student Organization Service Center. The center will give you the staff support and resources to get your idea going.

City living

With so much to do here, you’ll have lots of opportunity to get involved. VCU enjoys the perfect central location — right in the heart of Richmond, Va., — and offers big-city amenities and small-town charm.

One of the benefits of city living: You will never be bored. There’s always something to do in Richmond — check out one of the many annual events including Dragon Boat Festival, Arts in the Park, Carytown Watermelon Festival, French Film Festival, Richmond Folk Festival, the Monument Avenue 10k or SunTrust Richmond Marathon, or the 17th Street Farmers’ Market and First Fridays Art Walk.

Live here

Living on campus or in the surrounding community offers students the chance to build lifelong friendships and lasting professional networks.
