At Southern Virginia University, we love missionaries. That’s why we’ve made our campus the perfect gathering place for both returning and future missionaries.

Faith-supportive Community

Southern Virginia University is a gathering place for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. More than 9-in-10 of our students are Latter-day Saints and 1-in-3 are Returned Missionaries. Every student commits to a Code of Honor based on the principles and values of the Church.

Institute & YSA Stake

Our campus is home to a vibrant Young Single Adult Stake and the largest daytime Institute of Religion in the Eastern U.S. where students can earn University credit for religion courses.
