Room Types & Floor Plans

What's the difference?

Your room type is the style of bedroom and how many roommates you would like; for example, a UVA triple holds three students.

Your floor plan shows the overall apartment and number of suitemates; for example, a UVA triple is in a floor plan with six students total in two UVA triple bedrooms. Some room types (particularly at the QUAD) may be included in multiple floor plans. Please note that floor plans vary and we cannot guarantee your room will look exactly the same as it is pictured.
