Campus and classes. Hollins is a private university located on a beautiful 475-acre campus in Roanoke, Virginia. The university draws some 800 undergraduates from 43 states and 11 countries, more than 85% of whom live on campus. The student/faculty ratio is 9 to one; 86 percent of our classes have fewer than 20 students. In addition, nearly 300 students are enrolled in our numerous coed graduate programs.
