Students who choose to prematurely terminate their Housing Agreement will forfeit their $200 housing deposit and may be responsible for semester housing fees included on their original agreement.

Housing agreements for non-traditional undergraduate and graduate students run on a semester-by-semester basis. Housing agreements will automatically renew for the next academic period unless the student fills out a notice to vacate form.

The university does not have storage units available. However, several independent storage facilities are located in the immediate area (American Classic: 757.420.7676).

Yes. We have bicycle racks at various locations around the Commons and Village.

(Yes, we’ve been asked that question.) The parking lot is for motor vehicles only, which includes automobiles, motorcycles and pickup trucks. You may not park boats, trailers of any kind, mobile homes, campers, buses or trucks larger than three-quarter ton without prior consent of the Student Housing Office.

Inoperable vehicles or vehicles with expired registrations are not allowed to be parked on the property. Conducting major vehicle repairs in the parking lot is prohibited. Do not leave cars on jacks unattended.

As a courtesy to our residents in wheelchairs, we ask that you do not park your vehicle in a manner that would result in it protruding over the sidewalk.

Pets are not allowed in student housing assignments or anywhere on the residential area premises. This includes guests staying in a housing assignment. Visitors would need to make other arrangements for their pets before visiting Student Housing. Fresh water aquariums are permitted but limited to 5 gallons in size. Service animals and emotional support animals are permitted for those individuals who have registered them with Disability Services.

The Commons Housing Office is an example of an apartment. In addition, we have floor plans you may view in the above tabs. Due to the demand for student housing, we do not have a model apartment available, but tours may be scheduled through the Welcome Center by calling 757.352.4837. Regent Village Housing tours may be set up, based upon availability, by calling 757.352.4890

We prefer to communicate with prospective students by email or through their StarRez account, but please inform us if another method of communication would be more appropriate for them.

Fall housing assignments are finalized in mid-July, and spring semester assignments are finalized in mid-December. Once your student’s housing assignment has been made, he or she may view it on their StarRez account.

Summer semester housing is available to undergraduate students who are enrolled in on-campus summer classes, working on campus, or participating in an academic internship affiliated with 含羞草研究所 in the Virginia Beach area. Students who do not meet any of these criteria will be required to vacate their housing assignment in early May. Non-traditional and graduate students may remain in their housing assignments over the summer semester as long as they make the proper arrangements with the Housing Office.

Yes. Residents may have guests of the same sex stay with them for no more than three nights in a 30-day period. Residents must fill out a guest authorization form for any guests staying overnight in their housing assignment.
