The Gallery at Alexandria

Please note: Housing and Residence Life will operate The Gallery at Alexandria through December 31, 2021. Constituent groups will gather in the fall 2021 semester to evaluate the continued operations beyond the current commitment.

Step out on to the street and you're in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. The Gallery, repurposed to be a satellite residence hall in the Northeast Capitol Region, is one half block from the Prince Street School and approximately 5 blocks from the King Street Metro Station. Whether you're a student in the Architecture program looking for housing while working at the Washington-Alexandria Architecture Consortium, a Junior business major in need of housing during your summer internship, or a graduate student doing a co-op in Northern Virginia, The Gallery is home away from Blacksburg. 

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.

Not included in the rates below is a $150 non-refundable refurbishing fee for each occupant of the units.

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 us at for more information.
