Overnight lodging is not provided for Family Weekend but there are multiple hotels within walking and driving distance of campus. For our out-of-town guests, we suggest these Richmond-area hotels. This year, we have partnered with Graduate Richmond, a new hotel within walking distance of campus, to provide accommodations at a special VCU Family Weekend rate. This rate will be provided for a block of rooms on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the block of rooms fills, you can continue to receive a 20 percent off the regular room rate until the hotel is full. Book a room at the Graduate Hotel Richmond using the Family Weekend rate. If the Family Weekend block of rooms is full, book a room at the 20 percent off discounted rate.
