Virginia Wesleyan’s campus is small by design, creating an intimate learning environment. Inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s concept of the academic village, the VWU campus is comprised of four villages. Two of the four villages have residence halls, classrooms and faculty offices in the same building, fostering VWU's close-knit community. For more information, contact the Office of Residence Life at 757.455.3295 or come visit us in Batten Student Center, Room 220.
Bray Village (Village I)
Rose, Kellam, Eggleston and Old Halls
If you’re a freshman, there's a very good chance that Bray Village will be your home. Bray Village is one of the two villages on campus where residence halls, classrooms and faculty offices are located in the same building. You will often find students gathered in the lounge areas talking, eating, laughing and sharing stories. Each floor has community showers and bathrooms. Rose Hall houses women only, with Kellam being all male. Eggleston and Old Halls are co-ed by floor. You’ll also have convenient access to laundry facilities and vending machines. Ample parking is located nearby.
Allen Village (Village II)
Smithdeal, Gum, East and Johnston Halls
Set up exactly like Bray Village. If you enjoy socializing, but want a bit more privacy, East and Johnston Halls have different floor plans: double or triple rooms connected by a bathroom, a small number of double rooms with a private bathroom, or a six-room suite with a kitchen area. Gum and Smithdeal Halls are traditional (doubles and singles) with community showers and bathrooms. You’ll also have convenient access to laundry facilities and vending machines. Ample parking is located nearby.
Brock Village (Village III)
North, South and Teagle Halls, Apartments and Townhouses
Located in a wooded area back from the center of campus, Brock Village is almost exclusively for upperclassmen and returning students. Brock Village offers apartment-style, suite-style, and adjoining room living options. Suites and adjoining rooms offer students a bit more privacy than the traditional residence hall room, but there's still plenty of opportunity for socializing with a shared living space and laundry on each floor. Apartment living provides students with a private bedroom, shared kitchen and living room space, and access to lounges and laundry facilities on each floor. Additionally, the townhouses serve as our designated on-campus Greek housing. Ample parking is located nearby.
Honors Village (Village IV)
Broyles, DeFord, Mastraccos, Hendrix, Watts Halls
Comprised of six different buildings, each Village IV townhouse offers the independence of living on your own without the commute to campus. Like the apartments and townhouses in Brock Village, you’ll have your own private room, a fully-equipped kitchen and essential furniture. Ample parking is located nearby.
Every room is wired for internet access.
Each floor has one Resident Assistant (RA) to assist the students who live there (except the apartments and townhouses). Additionally, each village has one Village Coordinator. A Village Coordinator is available 24 hours a day via a rotating "on call" system.
