it is a great mixture of both. it is a very work hard play hard atmosphere. although the party scene is no too obnoxious to the point where other people's partying will affect you school work.
I would not describe UR as a party school, it's definitely more of a mixture
honestly its pretty big. although, if you dont want to party you dont have to. there are fraternity events every weekend and apartment parties all the time. if you are looking to go out and party there will be no difficulty finding out where they are.

The city of Richmond has a great bar scene, and UR students definitely take advantage of it. The disadvantage is that most of the bars are far from campus and require a designated driver or a taxi ride. The Cellar is a big part of the school’s nightlife. Although there are several clubs in Richmond, few students frequent them. Most of the bars have small dance floors, and the Row is basically a huge dance party.
If you are under 21, house parties and the Row are your best bets. Underage students are allowed into frats and aren’t required to show proof that they are old enough to drink. Once they turn 21, most UR students head downtown to the bars of Shockoe Slip or The Fan. Most students start their weekends on Wednesday or Thursday night. Thursday is the biggest night for bars, and Fridays and Saturdays are usually reserved for house parties or the Row. UR is not necessarily a party school, but you can always find a place to party if you are looking for one.
