If you haven't already signed a lease or purchased a mortgage in Charlottesville, hopefully these tips will help you.  One of the most intimidating parts of transitioning into residency is deciding where and the type of place you want to live. 



Jefferson Ridge Apartments  

"On the more expensive side for the area but pretty popular.  I am already signing a lease for my third year so as you can tell we are pretty happy here.  My commute is about 8-10 minutes every day."

~ Resident

Located on a hillside ridge with fantastic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Jefferson Ridge Apartments are only about a mile from the University of Virginia's Central Ground in Charlottesville, VA.



Stone Creek Village 

Probably the most popular development with the Medicine department.  Very nice apartments also not far from the hospital. 

~ Resident

Stone Creek Village is our most distinctive feature, offering the look and feel of a classic European village. When you need to go into town, Charlottesville's historic downtown and the University of Virginia Medical Center are only three miles away.

Lakeside Apartments  

"Very popular among the medicine residents.  Very nice apartments not very far from the hospital.  All of the people that I know that live there have lived there for the first two years of residency and their apartments seem really nice."

~ Resident

Lakeside offers one, two, and three bedroom floor plans. All of our apartments are priced according to floor level, location, and view. We have beautiful views of the mountains and our lake. Every apartment at Lakeside comes with a full sized washer and dryer. Apartments are fully carpeted with the exception of vinyl in the foyer, kitchen, and bathrooms. Select units have wood burning fireplaces and vaulted ceilings.



Carriage Hill Apartments

" A few medicine residents live here.  Also really nice apartments.  Really nice amenities and not too far from town.  They are on the more expensive side"

~ Resident 

Carriage Hill offers numerous architectural features that will distinguish your new home from all other apartments. Features such as multiple gables, bay and arched windows, door transoms and concealed entryways will welcome you and your guests to Charlottesville's finest apartment community.


Avemore Apartments

Located at the foot of Pantops Mountain amid beautiful landscapes and mountain views is where you'll find Avemore, a sophisticated residential neighborhood inspired by the rich tradition of Jeffersonian Architecture.

"I think one or two medicine residents live here-also very nice. 

~ Resident



"I hope you all have a smooth transition to Charlottesville.  Another area that many residents like is the Avon Street area.  It has homes and townhomes just outside the city for those wanting more space.  Five of the ED residents live in this area and a number of other residents live in my neighborhood (Psych, Medicine, Ortho, Anesthesia).  It is a nice Gem outside Cville, 5 min to downtown, 8-10 min to the hospital and away from the 29 North traffic. Other areas outside the city are Pantops and Crozet (longer commute from the country).  29 North has a lot of options, but the commute can have heavy traffic."
