Considering UVA & Charlottesville

We're here to help

In light of COVID-19, we anticipate that faculty and staff candidates and their families may be deciding upon UVA job offers and relocation to Charlottesville without the benefit of return trips to secure housing, visit schools, and learn more about our community. Although positions continue to post, we anticipate the hiring cycle for this year will take longer than usual. We hope the resources below will be helpful to you. 

Charlottesville area information sessions

The UVA Dual Career Program will be gathering your questions and offering weekly virtual information sessions to assist. These web-based information sessions are designed for incoming UVA faculty and staff planning to relocate to Charlottesville and their spouses/partners. We will provide:

  • an overview of housing options (including where to find long and short-term rentals),
  • schools, preschools, and daycare,
  • employment and networking information for spouses/partners and more. 

If you would like to attend this session, use the form below to express interest.  A member of the Dual Career Team will follow up to schedule a time after your submission has been received.
