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. 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 SportsSchool 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.
