Living and community at Piedmont Virginia Community College

Be Part of a Community

Living with your fellow classmates is one of the best parts of studying in the U.S. All first year University Bridge students live in the same community, and many students choose to stay for their second year. This creates a great atmosphere. You will make friends quickly. Our advisors stay close by, so we are always there if you need anything.

More Than Just Accommodations

There are many social events included with your housing: from meals out to trips to watch college football and basketball games, from go-karting to cooking lessons, you can always keep busy. Your advisor is there to support you with anything you need – we’ll always be there to help.

Local Area

The apartments at UBridge@PVCC are located near downtown Charlottesville. The Historic Downtown Mall is just a five-minute walk away – making it convenient to enjoy the many shops, international restaurants, cafes, and teahouses there.


With its reputation as one of America’s best college towns, Charlottesville is the perfect place to get a true US college experience – catch or take part in a sports game, hang out with classmates, watch a concert, or pursue your passions by joining one of the many clubs. There is always something to do, but remember to study as well!


If you need a break from all the excitement, the nation’s capital, Washington D.C., is two hours away and New York is a 1h 25m flight. You can go snowboarding in the Blue Ridge Mountains, or take a trip to Virginia Beach. There’s so much to do, you won’t want to leave.

Each University Bridge student is assigned a private advisor who is an expert on the community college system as well as the university transfer process. With UBridge’s CollegeCare®, students enjoy a student-to-advisor ratio of less than 25:1 and, therefore, have immediate access to advisors. Additionally, many of our advisors were international community college students themselves who were admitted to schools such as University of Virginia.
