UVA Academical Village: A Walk-Through History

The UVA Academical Village Campus Map Illustration shows the Lawn is part of the Academical Village designed by Thomas Jefferson. It is a beautiful, terraced grassy land at the historic center of Jefferson’s academic territories at the University of Virginia. The Lawn and its surrounding structures, designed by Jefferson, demonstrate Jefferson’s mastery of Palladian and Neoclassical architecture, and the site is known as an architectural masterpiece. In addition, the Lawn has been designated by the U.S. as part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the original structures of the University of Virginia and Jefferson’s next-door residence, Monticello.

  • Fourth-year Lawn residency: A prestigious honor.

The housing for students and faculty are surrounding Jefferson originally designed the Lawn to be the center of the university. The most famous building is the Rotunda, located at the north end of the Lawn. As you may see on the UVA Academical Village Campus Map Illustration, Old Cabell Hall is on the opposite side. In addition, ten Pavilions are Framing the other two sides of the Lawn. Being chosen as a Lawn Resident in a student’s fourth year is considered one of the university’s most prestigious honors. Opposite the Pavilions and Lawn rooms are ten gardens, and like the Pavilions, each garden is designed distinctly; no two gardens are the same. Both sides’ outermost row of buildings constitutes the Academical Village’s edge, known as the Range, and houses for graduate students.
