Veterans Hall

Founded on Solid Ground: UNCW Stays True to Roots with Newest Building

9/4/20 - As J. Marshall Crews wrote in From These Beginnings, “On September 4, 1947, at 4 p.m., Wilmington College, with seventeen faculty members, opened the doors to 238 students, seventy-five percent of whom were veterans.” Nearly 73 years later, Wilmington College is the University of North Carolina Wilmington and its continued support to those who serve is reflected in the name of its newest academic building.

Supported through the successful passage of the Connect NC Bond, UNCW broke ground on Veterans Hall in 2018 (see a time lapse of its construction here). The 145,000-square-foot facility is now open, housing the College of Health and Human Services, and is uniquely outfitted to educate the nation’s future healthcare practitioners and scientists. In addition to the CHHS programs, faculty and staff from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and the Office of Military Affairs occupies space in the facility supporting UNCW’s commitment to interprofessional collaboration.
