General Summer Session Housing

University-affiliated summer housing is limited. In recent years, summer session housing has been offered in double-occupancy bedrooms with shared bathrooms on each floor and a shared kitchen for each building. Online applications for summer session housing can be found on the Housing & Residence Life website when available. If you have questions or need assistance related to summer session housing, contact or 434-924-3736.

Housing & Residence Life will try to assign SLI participants to the same floor in the residence halls. Roommate requests must be mutual and are not guaranteed. You will need to indicate your affiliation with SLI, study language, and your preferred roommate (if applicable) on the summer session housing application.

Please note that you must be at least 18 years old to live in summer session housing.

What to Bring if Residing in University Housing

Housing & Residence Life has put together this list of suggestions to help you make informed decisions about what to bring to make your stay in the dorms as comfortable as possible: What to Bring FAQ

Off-Grounds Housing

Students interested in off-Grounds housing options may use the Off-Grounds Property Listing service. UVA does not screen, investigate, endorse, or approve the landlords, their business practices, or the rental properties listed on this website.

Other Services  

University of Virginia Summer Session students have access to an array of additional services, including athletic facilities, libraries, and student health. For more information on student services and activities, visit  

Access to many UVA facilities and services requires a university ID card.  

The ID Office issues ID cards at 525 McCormick Rd, first floor. You must bring a government-issued photo ID (e.g., driver’s license, passport or military ID). 

You should stop by the card office after you arrive on Grounds. Please remember that you will need a university ID card to access your meal plan if you signed up for one.  

A Word on the Weather and Charlottesville 

Charlottesville is quite hot in the summer, and the atmosphere in the SLI is casual, so we urge you to bring light clothing. A bicycle can be very useful for getting around town. We hope you find time to take an occasional short break from the intensity of your language study to explore what Charlottesville has to offer. The surrounding countryside includes some of the most beautiful landscapes in the United States, and the area is home to many historical landmarks. 

We look forward to having you join us for a rewarding summer!
