The Forum Hotel

Now open on the Grounds of the Darden School, the Forum Hotel reflects the vibrant atmosphere and purpose-driven culture of the Darden community by creating a dynamic meeting place for students, alumni, faculty, and guests.

The Forum Hotel fully embraces the meaning of its moniker, becoming a place that offers opportunities to connect, reflect, and learn together throughout the boutique property. Situated on the Grounds of the Darden School of Business and anchored by a magnificent five-acre arboretum, the hotel is home to thematic gardens, a pond, a restored stream, and walking trails that connect Darden to the UVA School of Law, Rivanna Trail, and the greater University and Charlottesville area. With well-suited interiors, personalized guest service, robust food and beverage programming, and breathtaking indoor and outdoor meeting and event spaces, every detail is designed to encourage heartfelt connections within the community.

The Forum Hotel would not be possible without the support of generous donors. Be a part of this important moment in Darden history by supporting the Powered by Purpose campaign and make your mark on this signature property.
