About The Corner

As old as The University of Virginia itself, founded in 1819, The UVA Corner is renowned as the place where a college got its essentials – from books to clothing, from food to lodging. Over the years The Corner has come to reflect the essence of UVA. Just off “Grounds,” over two dozen restaurants feed a hungry University and set the table of daily life here.
