George Washington Hall

As you round the traffic circle from the Double Drive, George Washington Hall, the University main administration building, will be to your right. Often called simply “GW,” it is here that students find the President’s Office and other administrative offices. Also located in GW is Dodd Auditorium, the largest formal gathering place on campus. Students may find themselves gathering here to receive their class rings, to see a weekend movie, to see their friends perform, travel the red carpet to the UMW Film Festival, or catch a concert or speaker. Recent guests have included Gavin DeGraw, Lonestar, The Roots, Ralph Nader, Garrison Keillor, Lewis Black, Eve 6, Lupe Fiasco, and the Plain White T’s.
