Moving off-campus is a rite of passage for most students –
another step on their road to independence. At Cavalier Crossing,
our goal is to make that transition as easy as possible for you and
your child by providing outstanding student housing.
Professional Management and Maintenance
Cavalier Crossing offers both professional on-site management
and 24-hour on-site maintenance.
Our local Executive Director is supported by skilled and
experienced teams focused on resident services, maintenance, and
residential life. Your child can seek assistance at any time by
meeting in person with the office team members or by filling out a
quick and easy work request online.
Individual Leases & Financial Responsibility
At our University of Virginia apartments, we offer individual
leases by the bedroom, not the unit. You and your child are only
responsible for paying your rent, even if your roommate graduates
As a part of the lease agreement, Cavalier Crossing requires
each student to have a Guarantor --- a person 25 years of age or
older who is a resident of the U.S. that will vouch for the
financial responsibility of the lease. If a Guarantor is not
available, a “prepaid approval” is an alternative, which requires
one and a half installments of prepaid rent held until after you
successfully move out.
Moving your child out on their own can be expensive. We try to
ease that financial burden with our all-inclusive living. We
support families with many student-friendly amenities that are free
and included in the overall rent. There is no additional cost

Monthly Social Events
Safety & Security
The safety and security of residents is our number one priority
at Cavalier Crossing. We offer secured windows, keyed apartment and
bedroom doors, courtesy officers and community assistants who are
on call and live on site.
We are proud to have a community with a vibrant residential life
program focused on social, physical, charitable, and educational
activities. Our residents are active participants in a variety of
monthly resident events hosted by our dedicated team of community
assistants and managers. Charitable activities we take part in
include Relay for Life, toy/food drives, and community clean
Some of our educational activities include everything from skin
cancer awareness to tutoring support. Our residents meet new
friends and create long-lasting memories during our popular social
events such as volleyball tournaments and breakfast on-the-go.
Every year, many students hope for the opportunity to become a
Cavalier Crossing Community Assistant (CA). CAs are assigned to
groups of residents and offer peer guidance and support during a
student’s transition to off-campus housing. CAs contact residents
weekly and assist them with everything from how to use appliances
to roommate problem-solving. The CA position provides students with
valuable resume-building experience through their work as a
community leader, problem solver, event planner, sales associate,
and friend. Cavalier Crossing hires approximately 7 CAs a year who
are paid at an hourly rate.
