Mercer Hall and Woodard Hall
University of Mary Washington

University of Mary Washington
Fredericksburg, Virginia

Mercer Hall was expanded to accommodate the university’s growing academic needs and features a computer lab, a vivarium, breakout rooms, a student lounge, and administrative and storage spaces. The three-story addition is contextually appropriate for the Georgian campus and preserved the facility’s historic status.

Woodard Hall originally served as the campus’s student center, but was repurposed to address a shortage of learning, meeting, and administrative space. A two-story addition was featured in the building’s updated design, as well as a new entrance and outdoor spaces. The updated facility includes a variety of classrooms, including tiered and lecture formats, computer labs, student lounge, collaborative breakout spaces, as well as administrative and support spaces.

Both Mercer Hall and Woodard Hall earned LEED Silver certification in 2017.
