University of Richmond

The University of Richmond, a liberal arts college located in Richmond, Virginia, is committed to educating in an intellectually vibrant community dedicated to the holistic development of students. The University offers both the close-knit community of a small college and opportunities that rival those of larger institutions, including a strong Division I athletics program and the nation’s only Spider mascot.

Richmond’s learning and research environment is grounded in the liberal arts and is enriched by its array of schools, with a singular integration of learning and scholarship across campus. Richmond enrolls approximately 3,600 traditional undergraduate students in the School of Arts & Sciences, Robins School of Business, and Jepson School of Leadership Studies, as well as 1,000 students in the School of Law (JD and LLM), School of Professional & Continuing Studies (graduate, undergraduate, and certificate programs) and Robins School of Business (MBA) programs.

The University is committed to access and affordability and is one of about 80 institutions in the country that is both need-blind and meets full need. The Richmond Guarantee guarantees each undergraduate student up to $5,000 to participate in a faculty-mentored research project or an internship.
