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. At that time, we will also assess a $500 housing prepayment charge to your account.
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 the Residential Learning Coordinator Liz Aker (email@example.com) for more information.
