A Look into
Reynolds Hall

The Fall 2021 semester may be behind us, but that means we are one step closer to the completion of our new building. 

Reynolds Hall will be complete in April 2022 and ready to host its first classes for Mountaineers in Fall 2022.

Named for alumnus Robert "Bob" Reynolds and his wife, Laura, Reynolds Hall sits on an iconic, riverfront site on the Downtown campus with views of the Monongahela River and direct access to the PRT, as well as from Beechurst Avenue.

Our new building will enhance the educational and teaching model, and significantly enhance the student experience at West Virginia University. 

In November, members of our Chambers College Strategic Communications team and WVU's University Relations team spent the day with Bob and Laura Reynolds to get an inside look at their lives, careers, and what inspired them to get involved with WVU’s new business complex. 

The husband and wife duo spoke about why they wanted to give back to the University, why they were excited for Reynolds Hall and why the building will help lead our business students, and our state, into the future. 

Creating a new center of activity for the campus, this complex will include collaborative classrooms and learning labs for virtually every discipline. Advanced technologies will connect WVU to the world, from students across campus to companies around the globe.

We were also able to photograph select faculty members in their unique centers and learning labs, which will be included in the magazine.
