In the crush of coursework and internships, it can be hard to squeeze in a workout. Luckily, we’re one of the only off-campus communities in the city to have a sunny gym that’s just steps away from your apartment and open 24/7. That means you can lift, run, and take in the sweeping views of the pool whenever it fits your schedule.
At the end of a demanding day, your apartment is the perfect place for some R&R. Catch up with your roommates in your cozy living room, or take some you-time in your spacious bedroom complete with private bath. We’re proud to offer some of the most spacious off-campus layouts in all of RVA.
