Your IRL Guild Hall

Home is where your friends hang out

Make the most of your time at USV by making it your home away from home. 

Our luxury apartments have all the amenities you could ask for and then some! Chill with your friends at the pool, get a workout in at the fitness room, or take advantage of the awesome activities happening right in the apartment complex.

After all, what could be better than living where everyone embraces their inner nerd?

These student leaders have your back by offering support and guidance when you need it and take the lead on hosting all kinds of social activities that will help you find those BFFs for life who just get you, because they’re a lot like you.
