Residence Halls

UVa-Wise offers students a variety of campus living arrangements, from traditional rooms and suites to apartments.  Halls are designated for first-year students and upperclass students, as outlined below. 

In fall 2011, McCraray Hall will become a living learning community.  First-year students living in McCraray Hall will live in a unique community where classroom learning is enhanced in their residence hall.  The McCraray Hall living learning community offers students new experiences, both socially and academically, through programs and activities designed to foster the continual exploration of thoughts and ideas outside the classroom. 

The living learning community offers many benefits to McCraray residents that are not available to residents in other facilities, including:

  • ease of transition to college life
  • positive impact on academics
  • strong support network of students, faculty and staff
  • increased faculty interaction outside the classroom
  • development and enhancement of leadership skills
  • interpersonal and personal skills development
  • academic help from upperclass tutors in the McCraray tutoring center
  • hands-on help and assistance with questions about being a UVa-Wise student
