Admissions Office, Constructed 1965

Located on Jamestown road near the Campus Center, the undergraduate admissions office at William & Mary, welcomes more than 25,000 people to campus each year. This building serves as the starting point for the thousands of high school students and their families who visit and tour the Williamsburg campus. Student tour guides working through the admission office conduct more than 1,000 campus tours each year. The undergraduate admission offices were previously housed in Blow Memorial Hall on Richmond Road.

The building, constructed in 1965, housed the college bookstore until that function moved to its current location on Duke of Gloucester Street in Merchants' Square in 2001. The building was renovated to accommodate the admissions office in 2007.
