Virginia Union University- Living & Learning Center
In 2012, Virginia Union University made plans to build a $14 million complex to house two residence halls and a community conference center. It was constructed on a grassy field that includes several athletic courts on campus next to MacVicar Hall, a women’s dorm.
It is 68,028 square feet, and provides a total of 240 beds in separate wings for men and women to accommodate expected growing enrollment. The Community Conference Center has the capacity to hold 450-500 people.
The new facility is at one of the nation’s oldest historically black universities. VUU formally housed Lumpkin’s Jail and later became a school for freed slaves. This new center held it’s ground breaking ceremony in the late summer of 2012, and construction was complete in 2013.
This was a joint venture with Turner Construction.
