The costs are per person, as we offer
individual license agreements. This means the resident is only

residents because they don't have to worry about their roommate(s)
paying their rent on time, moving out in the middle of the year,
etc. Our residents are only responsible for their contract and

we will not have any push carts available.

cannot be removed from apartments. If you are bringing additional
furniture, make sure you have enough room for all of your
belongings. Also, it is encouraged to discuss any furniture
purchases or thoughts on bringing additional furniture with your

What will my mailing address
Resident's First and
305 Campus View Drive #UNIT

Residents will receive
their unit number on move-in day. If a resident needs to ship
something to UVA prior to move-in, they may leave their unit number
off of the address. Residents must add their unit number to all
mail after move-in day.
How do I pick my roommates?
Residents can choose their roommates
with RoomSync. RoomSync is an app through Facebook where you can
view other residents' profiles and choose one another to live
with. Click here to view a video on how it
works. Residents must have a Facebook account in order to
use the program. If you do not have a Facebook account, you can
either create one or you will not be able to choose your roommates.
Roommate assignments will be decided by housing staff based on
availability. Residents will receive a link to join RoomSync in
their confirmation email from housing within a week from being
countersigned. We do not advise to sign up for RoomSync on your own
directly with RoomSync. Only use the links provided in your
confirmation email. The link is specific to the resident and cannot
be forwarded. The deadline to select roommates is July 1,
How do the payments work?
We offer three different payment plans
for the license amount: a payment in full, two equal semester
payments, and eight equal installments. All of the payment options
are based on the total license amount. The first installment for
all payment plan options, is due August 1, 2018.
The $300 administrative fee does not go towards the first
installment, as the administrative fee is a separate processing
fee. Residents and guarantors can pay online using their
Resident Portal. If payment is not
received by the due date or within the five day grace period, the
resident will be assessed a late fee of $50 on the 6th of the

coordinate who is going to bring what so you don't show up on
move-in day with five toasters and three vacuums. UVA does have a
