Real Estate Club


REC Logo

The Darden Real Estate Club strives to enhance students’ understanding of the real estate industry, build and strengthen Darden’s relationships with real estate firms, and provide guidance to our members in their search of careers within the field. As an end goal, we are focused on furthering the Darden brand while further solidifying Darden’s reputable presence in the real estate community.

Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.
