The University of Virginia celebrated the groundbreaking of the new Hotel and Conference Center on October 6th.
The 220,000 square foot project will include 225 guestrooms, conference facilities, and a visitors center. A contemporary interpretation of Jeffersonian thinking, the new Hotel and Conference Center will also serve the campus community—including students, faculty, and staff—as well as visitors and Charlottesville residents, creating a new place to stay amid the vibrant exchange of ideas. The project will anchor the Emmet / Ivy Corridor, and act as a bridge between the North Grounds and Central Grounds.
The Hotel and Conference Center is expected to open Summer 2025.
