Opened in 1825 and still the historic and ceremonial core of the University of Virginia, the Academical Village represents Thomas Jefferson’s vision of a holistic learning environment carried beyond the classroom. Jefferson was influenced by Palladio and Greco-Roman architecture and consulted with architects William Thornton and Benjamin Latrobe on the design. His plan consists of a 200-foot wide open lawn, set into three tiers and lined with deciduous trees, with rows of interconnected buildings enclosing the long east and west sides and the Rotunda anchoring the northern edge. Jefferson’s Rotunda was inspired by the Pantheon in Rome and served as the school’s library. This UNESCO World Heritage Site remains a working residence for students and faculty to this day. Tour “the Lawn” and “Grounds” with current Wahoos.
