    Richmond, Virginia, United States Campus Website

    The university is located in the historic city of Richmond, Virginia's capital city, about 100 miles south of Washington, D.C. The academic campus is in a restored residential area of 19th-century homes where many of the buildings are historically and architecturally significant. The Virginia Museum of Fine Art, the state's foremost art gallery, is located close to campus. Richmond was recently voted Outdoor Magazine’s best river town in America thanks to the tremendous opportunities for outdoor activities including hiking, biking, rafting, kayaking and more. Richmond is also home to many significant cultural activities including First Friday’s Art Walk, CenterStage Performing Arts center, the American Civil War Center, and the National and Landmark theaters.

    The Global Education Office can assist students in finding volunteer opportunities at VCU, as well as throughout the Richmond community and the surrounding area through its rich offering of activities and services. In previous years students have participated in hands on greater Richmond day, with Habitat for Humanity, and in the Richmond Public School system. GEO provides a buddy program which matches exchange students with a VCU student. VCU offers monthly excursions to different sites in Virginia, including Virginia beach, hiking in Shenandoah National Park, day trips to Washington D.C., shopping and site seeing in historic Williamsburg and the Virginia State Fair.
