Welcome

The University of Virginia owns an extensive portfolio of buildings and land, which includes approximately 16 million square feet of building space and over 1,000 acres of land.

To help faculties and departments with space needs, UVA Real Estate and Leasing Services and Space Management provide services including space planning, leasing negotiation and property acquisitions.

NEED event space?

The University of Virginia offers many event space options throughout Grounds. Reservations should be made as early as possible, particularly for large events. The primary tool for finding available space is The SOURCE.

Resources

  • The SOURCE – the University’s scheduling and calendar website, where you can view the availability of spaces. You can also request a specific space or a suitable space based on event needs.
  • Event Planning Services – manages the scheduling of events and activities within Newcomb Hall, UVA Chapel, Ern Commons, O’Hill Forum, Runk Green Room, Lambeth Commons and the Student Activities Building.
  • U.Va. Conference Services – offers event planning services that include coordination of facility reservations, equipment rental, catering services and travel/parking services.

NEED space?

The University’s Space Working Group (SWG) manages space requests submitted through this website. SWG provides options and solutions when it has been determined that the space need cannot be accommodated within the school or business unit’s space holdings.

First, determine if your space need can be accommodated within your department, school or business unit’s space holdings by contacting your department chair, head, associate dean or space management department. If it has been determined that your space need cannot be met within your department, school or business unit, please email spacerequest@virginia.edu and include a description of your space needs. Someone from the SWG will contact you to guide you through the University’s space request process.

For those who are familiar with the process, please submit a University Space Request Form.
