Green & Gold Village, Constructed 1965-1968

The Green & Gold Village is a co-ed freshman housing complex at William & Mary comprised of three buildings: Griffin, Eagle, and Lion. Up to 428 residents can occupy the complex directly across Ukrop Way from William and Mary Hall.

The buildings that now make up the Green & Gold Village were constructed between 1965 and 1968 and served as the university's fraternity complex until the opening of the current one in 2013. The first 4 fraternities to occupy the complex, Kappa Sigma, Lambda Chi Alpha, Kappa Alpha, and Keplar (a colony of the Sigma Chi Fraternity), began to take residence in the fall of 1967. Several other fraternities began to slowly occupy the units throughout the 1967-1968 academic year, with the last ones taking residence in the fall of 1968.

Each hall in the three buildings has a full kitchen and lounge on the first floor, as well as laundry machines and large lounges for study and recreation in the basement.
