Situated in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville is a sophisticated small city with small town flavor only an hour from the state capital in Richmond and just two hours from Washington, DC. Often ranked among the “best places to live,” it's easily accessible by air, rail, bus and interstate highway.

Once home to three presidents (#3 Thomas Jefferson at Monticello, #4 James Madison at Montpelier, and #5 James Monroe at Ashlawn-Highlands), the city also claims two World Heritage sites: Monticello and the University of Virginia. With an almost endless variety of outdoor activities, Charottesville's rich cultural offerings include vibrant live music, food and shopping scenes, annual book and film festivals, a symphony orchestra and the broad spectrum of entertainment at the NTelos Pavilion, The Paramount Theater and the John Paul Jones Arena.

The School of Nursing is located in McLeod Hall and the Claude Moore Nursing Education Building on the Health System region of University: UVA Web Map. Both buildings are open from 8am to 5pm every weekday, with some extended hours during the school year for special events.
