Byrd Hall

Bryd Hall

Byrd Hall, a freshmen female residence hall,
 was named in honor of The Honorable Harry Floyd Byrd, Former Governor of Virginia.

This five story, nine wing residence hall was erected during the1929-1930 school year from funds derived from the Noell Act and from appropriations made by the General Education Board. Byrd Hall is equipped with three large air-conditioned lobbies, individual air conditioning units in each room, recreational areas, a quiet study room, laundry facilities, and a computer lab that has high speed internet connectivity. Each wing of Byrd Hall shares a community bathroom.

Residence Coordinators (RC), who are full‑time professional staff, are responsible for the overall supervision of the residence halls. Resident Assistants (RA) and Graduate Assistants function as para-professionals and assist the RC in their duties. Night Managers assist the RC with overnight coverage.
