Real Estate Services

After
The Depot, located at 814 W. Broad St., was fully renovated and opened it's doors in early 2014.

Real Estate Services provides strategic and comprehensive real estate services and management that align with and support the university’s strategic plan and institutional goals, while at the same time give consideration to the economic development and engagement activities coordinated with the university’s leadership. Important to the success of the university’s real estate development is the unit’s role in liaising and collaborating with facilities planning and academic and administrative units to ensure critical communication and coordination.

Included in the services are negotiations for acquisitions, leasing, property management, developing agreements for facility use, easements, collaboration on development projects and general disposition for university and real estste foundation holdings.

Real Estate Services takes great pride in its work to ensure the university’s real estate needs are met in order to carry out its mission as the premiere urban, public research university in Virginia, and providing for future growth and expansion of the university.
