Lawn Directory


The Lawn Resident Directory 1895-2013 lists Lawn and Range residents by year and by room number. For the years between 1960 and 2002, our sources for this information include the University Alumni Association database, Housing Department records, and annual student directories; for the earlier years, our sources include Corks & Curls, the University Catalogue and the University Record, the U. S. Census, and annual student directories.

More recent records come from University Residence Life. We also sought information from alumni for whom we had identified Lawn or Range addresses. We ask that if you see an omission or error, please contact us at preservation@virginia.edu so that we can work to correct our records.

The Lawn Directory may be searched by a series of keywords, permitting you to find an individual, residents of a room or building, or residents by date of their time on the Lawn.
