A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:
The University of Richmond was originally a Baptist Seminary, founded in 1830 and located in downtown Richmond. When the literary studies program was added in 1840 the seminary incorporated as Richmond College. For 84 years Richmond College continued and in 1914 the college relocated to a rural 322-acre tract of land less than six miles away. During this move the Westhampton College for Women was started and the entire campus in its new location was known as the University of Richmond. Today the campus has more than 70 buildings (counting the University Forest Apartments as 1 building), 30 parking lots, 6 fields, 16 tennis courts, and an outdoor theatre. At the center of campus is the 13-acre lake Westhampton Lake. The buildings range in age from 1914 construction to 2016 construction. The architecture is designed as Collegiate Gothic.
