Main Street’s Major Charmer Just Across from The Grounds

Main Street’s Major Charmer Just Across from The Grounds

Welcome to Graduate Charlottesville – where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay.

We’re located in the center of it all, across the street from the University of Virginia Grounds and steps away from The Rotunda and The Lawn. We proudly sit on the historic Main Street, overlooking The Corner, a charming downtown stretch of restored and renovated restaurants, galleries and a slew of fun shops and stops. Quite simply, it’s the smartest place to stay in town!

Come on by and enjoy our cafe, a “trad and true” mix of rich refined greens, soft pinks and handsome parquet with just the right modern finishes to make it all ours. Sip an espresso in Sheepdog Café, get your consummate collegiate on in the second floor game room, or head up to Camp Ten Four for rooftop views and craft cocktails. We’re the perfect spot for a tour of the Grounds, company meet up, or a place to pop by for Ping-Pong, Foosball and a stash of locally crafted brews and bites.

So, whether you’re in town rallying for a Cavaliers game at Scott Stadium, dropping by for a show at The Paramount or Jefferson Theater, or here for a meeting, we’re here to make it memorable. Our warm, friendly and whip smart staff (#humblebrag) can guide you to and around Charlottesville’s finest – so that you feel like a local at home again, even if it’s your first time in town.

Our rooms are ready for a night like you’ve never had before. Where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor and around each corner. This is Graduate – be ready to be inspired.

Pet Friendly

We love furry friends probably a little more than the next guy and would never dare ask you leave them at home during your travels. In fact, when you bring your four-legged companion along for the ride, they stay for free and will enjoy a pup perk* compliments of our pals at BarkBox.

 *We’ll outfit your room with a bowl and blanket for your pup to enjoy during their stay. If you wish to take either item home with you, they are available for purchase through our front desk. BarkBoxes can also be added to your reservation for a small fee or purchased upon arrival at the front desk.
