University of Virginia
UVA is across the street from the inn and was founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819. It was the first University centered around a library instead of a church. Today it enjoys a reputation as a “Public Ivy” and has about 15,000 undergraduates as well as a Law School, Business School, Medical School and graduate Arts and Sciences programs.
The “grounds” of UVA are a UNESCO World Heritage Architectural site. Tours meet daily (except during the three-week holiday break in Dec.-Jan. and during the final exam period during the first three weeks of May).
