    Hi! Congratulations. I am a local and can help in any way you need. I will pm you my email.

    Here are a few resources to get you started:

    Graduate Students, Housing & Residence Life, U.Va.

    Charlottesville Apartments - Blue Ridge Apartment Council

    In addition, I would look at the HOOK and CVILLE websites under classifieds. They are two free local papers that have housing listed for rent or sale.

    Classifieds | The Hook - Charlottesville's weekly newspaper, news magazine

    C-Ville Classifieds: Charlottesville classifieds for jobs, apartments, personals, for sale, services, community, and events

    I also recommend the Graduate Guide - a portal for new graduate students at the University. It gives good guidance on matters ranging from apartments to childcare/preschools to restaurants/hotels.

    One additional note for those coming from a distance: the CNL program will likely begin around May 13th. This is one week before Final Exercises at UVa (our version of graduation) where approximately 5,000 students will get their degrees. Many apartment/house leases that students hold expire at the end of May. Some CNL students have sought temporary housing (hotels, short-term rentals) for 3 weeks in May and then moved into more permanent settings on June 1 when the apartments held by the graduating grads/undergrads open up.

    I looked at some places online but some have horrible reviews online from previous tenants. Is there anything that is outside of Charlottesville that isnt too far away?

    I definitely recommend Ash Tree Apartments/Cambridge Square Apartments. I know quite a few people who live there who love it because it's close to UVA and the Corner (where all the local college restaurants/shops are), right next to a bus stop that goes to the hospital, and has its own gym. I would generally not recommend living outside of Charlottesville, as it would require at least a 30 minute drive into down, then parking at a lot (which requires a parking pass), then taking the bus in or walking. There is NO parking at UVA, therefore while driving in is an option (as I do it myself), just remember that you will have to park at a lot first. The one nice thing is that the Green Route bus takes you directly to the hospital/nursing school though.

    Just to piggy back what Meg11 says, I would suggest making sure you pick a place to live on the bus line. Charlottesville has various means of transportation from the free trolley, UVA bus, and the general public bus. They are all free since you are a student. I live right outside of Charlottesville and will be either getting a parking pass or catching the bus from the downtown mall (a pedestrian walking mall with a lot of restaurants and shopping). In the past I have parked at the mall and caught the free trolley which has a stop right in front of the hospital which is adjacent to the nursing school. The downside to parking at the mall is I have always had to allot an extra hour into my travel time b/c the bus never is precisely on schedule and I don't like to be late.
