The Gallery in Old Town Alexandria is Virginia Tech's housing option for students participating in our Northeast Capitol Region programs. Traditionally, this space has been home to many of the WAAC (Washington Alexandria Architecture Center) participants, but it is also open to other programs as well!   

The Gallery is located one half block from the Prince Street School and approximately 5 blocks from the King Street Metro Station.

The majority of units (apartments) consist of a living/dining room, a kitchen, a bedroom, and bath, and are expected to hold two students. There are also larger units that contain a loft space used as a bedroom, in addition to the living/dining room, kitchen, bedroom and bath, and these units are intended to house three/four students.  The units are furnished with beds, dresser, sofa, coffee table, end tables, and a dining room table & chairs.  You are responsible for your linens, shower curtain, dishes, pots/pans/TV & a microwave, if desired.  Housing costs listed below include all utilities except phone/computer/cable TV.

Once you are offered a space at The Gallery, you will receive a housing contract to complete and return. At that time, we will also assess a $500 housing prepayment charge to your account.

Not included in the rates below is a one-time $150 non-refundable refurbishing fee for each occupant of the units.  If the occupant moves units during their stay, an additional $150 fee will be charged for each unit.

Due to limited space, parking at The Gallery is based on a lottery system. If you are offered a parking spot, the cost of a permit is $175 during the fall and spring semesters, and is $87.50 for summer sessions. Contact Residential Learning Coordinator Liz Aker (eca94@vt.edu) for more information. 

Those staying for both Summer Sessions (which equals one Full Summer Semester)  may remain in the same room throughout the two summer sessions.
