Summer Intern Housing

Short-term summer housing is available from Sunday, May 27, 2018 until Saturday, August 11, 2018 for students completing internships at UVA, or individuals participating in UVA-affiliated summer programs (not those enrolled in summer session classes). Please note that you must be at least 18 years of age to live on-Grounds in short-term summer housing.


UVA interns and participants in UVA-affiliated programs stay in air-conditioned, apartment-style accommodations in the Copeley Apartments residential area. Each guest will have a single bedroom with a full-size bed, desk, and wardrobe in a shared two-bedroom apartment. Apartments contain a full and a half bathroom, bathroom, a living room, and a full kitchen with stove, refrigerator, and sink. All apartments are furnished with a sofa, two arm chairs, coffee table, two end tables with lamps, and dining table with chairs.

Please note that bedrooms are not equipped with hangers, irons, ironing boards, hair dryers, or lamps (overhead lighting only). Guests are responsible for supplying their own bed linens, pillow, towels, and personal toiletry items including shampoo, soap, etc. In addition, apartments are not equipped with cooking supplies. Guests are responsible for supplying their own pots, pans, plates, utensils, etc. 


Laundry facilities are available for the use of guests during the summer. Washers and dryers use Cavalier Advantage cards only, and are not coin-operated. Cavalier Advantage operates by card reader and works as a declining balance account on your card, so funds must be available in your account. Individuals with a University-issued ID card may place Cavalier Advantage funds on their ID using one of the deposit machines on Grounds. Guests without a University ID may place funds on their Conferences@UVA-issued room access card. Up to $20 in laundry funds may be added. Unused funds are not refundable, but can be used in vending machines or at the UVA Bookstore. 

Information about Cavalier Advantage, including cash deposit machine locations, is available online.
