Capital Project Updates for the 2019-2020 Academic Year
Battleground Athletic Complex Parking
In cooperation with the City of Fredericksburg, UMW added 129 parking spaces just behind the outdoor track at the Battleground Athletic Complex. The additional parking will support sporting events and alleviate congestion along Hanover Street.
Willard Hall and Virginia Hall Renovation
In January, UMW will reopen historic Willard Hall, the oldest building on campus dating back to 1911, after having undergone extensive renovation and modernization. Willard Hall will continue to serve as a residence hall for first year students. Students will move from Virginia Hall into Willard Hall to begin the spring semester so that renovation can then begin on Virginia Hall, the second oldest residence hall dating back to 1914.
Seacobeck Hall Renovation
With additional funding secured, UMW will restart renovation of the historic Seacobeck Hall in January. Seacobeck Hall, previously the University’s dining hall, will be the new home for the College of Education and the Office of Disability Resources.
Currently in the design phase, UMW is planning an infrastructure project that will make repairs and replace underground utilities such as steam, water, and sanitary sewer. The two-phase project is planned for the summers of 2020 and 2021.
