Living in RVA

Richmond, Virginia, combines the amenities of a major metropolitan area with the charm and convenience of a small, historic city.

Virginia Commonwealth University's location, smack in the middle of Virginia's capital city, allows the VCU community to draw on every facet of the metropolitan environment to sculpt their VCU experience.
