Main Campus around near the Rotunda worth the trip. Charlottesville free trolly brings you right to the heart of the campus. Free to walk around the beautiful campus and into the Rotunda. See where Thomas Jefferson walked the grounds. Worth spending a few hours.

We strolled through the campus and found it to be one of the most beautiful we've seen. The only building we went inside was the old library. Well worth seeing -- not just for prospective students, but for anyone interested in the history.

Our son and I are on the grounds (aka, campus) for freshman orientation. The UVA staff is a class act. Outstanding orientation program. Outstanding grounds. Amazing architecture. Unbeatable history.

I highly recommend the tours and exploring the grounds yourself. The restored Rotunda is better to behold with background of the university founding and the story of growth. We were fortunate to explore the back gardens and see Edgar Allen Poe's room along the Range....More

I am a big fan of TJ, we went to the university of Virginia as part of our Monticello trip. It was great to see one of the major schools to start the "state school" system across the USA.

This university was a true gem. The main buildings and the campus was beautiful. A nice walk even with small children.

You do not need to make a reservation. You just need to show up at the gallery at the scheduled times. You can find the tour times and location on the college website.
