W&L Law students have a number of off-campus housing options to select from, ranging from conveniently located apartments, condos and townhouses to homes in local neighborhoods. For off-campus housing, typical monthly rent for a one-bedroom apartment can cost from $400-600, and a two bedroom apartment can rent for $600 - $900. A great many of our students live in and around downtown Lexington (approximately a 10 to 15 minute walk from the law school). Other students choose to live a few miles outside of town, in Rockbridge County, and there are a number of properties in the area with beautiful views of the Blue Ridge mountains, the Maury River and the surrounding environs. In addition to the housing options in the Lexington area, the town of Buena Vista is located just under 10 minutes from Lexington. Typically, rentals are less expensive there.
For those students seeking off-campus housing, we encourage you to consult the classified ads, utilize the local realtors (all of whom are located along Main Street and do not charge for their services), visit the law school, and drive around town. Lexington is small enough that a great many landlords advertise an availability by simply posting a sign in front of the property. For more information about off-campus housing, please feel free to consult our webpage for off-campus housing.
