==College career==
Hall chose to attend the [[University of Virginia]]. He graduated with a [[bachelor's degree]] in [[anthropology]], and continued to pursue graduate studies while exhausting his college eligibility.<ref name=bio/> He sat out the 2005 season as a redshirt. In [[2006 Virginia Tech Hokies football team|2006]], head coach [[Al Groh]] moved Hall to [[cornerback]], a position that lacked depth and for which Hall was suited with his athleticism and size. Nevertheless, it was an unusual decision considering Hall's record-setting interscholastic career as a quarterback.<ref>[https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/08/27/AR2007082701492.html Cavs' Hall Starred at QB; Now He's on the Defensive], ''The Washington Post'', p.

In 2007, Hall started in all 13 games as a cornerback and again played on special teams, including as a [[holder (American football)|holder]] and [[return specialist]]. He led the team's cornerbacks in tackles. Hall recorded 58 tackles, three broken-up passes, and one interception. He compiled 230 yards on [[punt return]]s and 33 yards on [[kickoff return]]s. Against [[2007 Pittsburgh Panthers football team|Pittsburgh]], he returned punts for 22 and 45 yards, each of which set up Virginia touchdowns on the subsequent possession. He also scored a touchdown on a fake field goal attempt. For his performance in that game, Hall was named the [[Atlantic Coast Conference]] (ACC) Specialist of the Week.

Hall was named the [[team captain]] for the 2008 season and started in 11 games as a cornerback and one as a quarterback, and also handled [[return specialist|punt and kick return]] and holding duties. Hall was the starting quarterback for the season's final game against [[2008 Virginia Tech Hokies football team|Virginia Tech]]. He recorded 59 tackles and two interceptions on defense. As a quarterback, he accumulated one pass attempt, 109 rushing yards, and two rushing touchdowns. In 2009, head coach Al Groh hired Gregg Brandon as the offensive coordinator for the new spread offensive, which made Vic Hall the starting quarterback for the season. In the first game vs. William and Mary, Vic Hall was benched for Jameel Sewell who was the starting quarterback in 2007. After that, Al Groh moved Vic Hall back to cornerback, and then wide receiver where he was very successful. He was also the starting punt returner but was benched vs. William and Mary also. He recovered his starting return job vs. Boston College when he returned a 58-yard punt back for a touchdown, but it was called back for a penalty, and he kept the job for the rest of the season.<ref name=bio/>
