About Our Office

The Office of the Architect for the University (OAU) provides an integrated methodology for planning and design excellence by creating and improving a model academic environment consistent with UVA's status as one of the leading public universities in the world. 

The office is organized  by professional disciplines: Architecture & Sustainability, Historic Preservation. Land Use Planning, Landscape Architecture, and Strategic Space Planning.  

We are located on the 3rd floor of O'Neil Hall, a newly renovated and repurposed building from 1924 that was formerly used as faculty apartment housing.
