4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

Had a delightful walk through the rotunda and main campus. The dorm rooms along the quad area in front of the rotunda were very neat and a must see

“A very student-friendly campus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

We visited the University of Virginia campus very briefly . We liked very much the student-friendly setting of the campus.We also learned from our friends ( whose son is graduate of the Law School there ) that it is a highly rated University in the US.

“Fascinating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

You need to book a guided tour. The students do a wonderful job taking you back in time and explaining how the university came to be.

“Wonderful College Campus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is currently under construction. Even with this being said, the grounds at UVA are beautiful and Jefferson's vision is explained well by your student tour guide. We toured MANY college campuses when our kids were selecting their schools and UVA was one of the most beautiful and interesting!

“Important piece of American history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

I graduated from UVA a few years ago, and it was probably the best decision I've ever made in my life. The schools are first-rate and there is something for everyone here. From a tourist perspective, it's a beautiful stroll through colonial architecture with Roman influences. The grounds are commanding and well-kept, with plenty of open spaces and quads, but yet also have intimate public spaces such as the gardens with the serpentine walls. If you come to UVA, you absolutely must go to the Lawn and view Jefferson's magnificent Rotunda.
