UVA to Share Housing Study Results with City Council
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -
The University of Virginia will share the results of a student housing study with Charlottesville City Council Wednesday night.
The university hired consultants to survey 2,500 students about the need for residence halls and off-grounds apartments. UVA undergraduates want housing close to the university and where they can choose their own roommates. Grad students are more interested in cost.
The university hopes the survey helps the city plan new student housing developments.
“It's a partnership between the university and the local community as far as helping meet the needs of our students. So it's important for them to hear what it is the students want,” said Gay Perez, UVA associate dean of students.
The survey found overall 88 percent of students are satisfied with the housing available at UVA and around Charlottesville. That’s higher than the national average for universities.
