Let's Get Connected: Online Resources at UVa

It's no secret that UVa has a wealth of resources and opportunities available to students. But over the years, UVa students have joined together to create even more ways to get connected, such as Facebook groups, websites, and other online resources that help ease the stress of college life. Check out some of the most popular ones below:

Hoos Riding, Hoos Driving

A page for UVa students to sell, buy, or give away (!!!) old furniture, clothes, and dorm supplies.

Housing, Sublets, and Roommates

UVA Student to Student Textbooks
