    Our community is right across the street from the Snead Hall School of Business and the School of Engineering, and adjacent to VCU’s Cary & Belvidere apartments. Imagine the convenience: not only will the need for on-campus parking be eliminated, but you’ll also be able to press the snooze button a few times, and still get to class on time! Though 8½ Canal Street is not officially affiliated with any specific university, we work hard to remain connected to VCU, University of Richmond, VUU, and any other college you may be interested in attending. This allows us to keep you constantly updated with university events and services that you may be interested in. Additionally, it helps us to provide you with the best possible experience. Getting ready for the big homecoming game? We’ll keep you in-the-know about all the big events. Have a question that might need university attention?
