Student Wellness Improvements
About the Project
The Student Wellness Improvements capital project helps strengthen Virginia Tech’s commitment to supporting holistic student well-being through enhanced student health, wellness, counseling, and recreational sport resources and programs.
The 201,000 gross-square-foot War Memorial Hall is being fully renovated to support enhanced health and wellness offerings on Virginia Tech’s Blacksburg campus.
Upon completion, War Memorial Hall will house Recreational Sports; School of Education faculty offices; and research and office space for the Department of Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise that will bring together health science with hands-on application of exercise, health, and well-being.
War Memorial Hall renovations include new, refreshed, and expanded exercise and activity spaces; dedicated functional fitness space; mind and body studio; dance studio; wet classroom for aquatic and safety instruction; building system upgrades, including air conditioning; modernized general assignment classrooms; student gathering spaces; and administrative offices. Newly modernized locker rooms and bathrooms will include family changing rooms and all-gender spaces.
