Morton Hall is located at the intersection of Ukrop Way and Jamestown Road, southeast of Jones Hall. Morton Hall currently houses the most academic offices on campus, including Africana Studies, Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, Classical Studies, Economics, Gender Sexuality and Women's Studies, Global Studies, Government, International Relations, Sociology, and the Thomas Jefferson Program in Public Policy.

Morton Hall opened for use in 1972 and housed the Marshall-Wythe Institute, the John Marshall Papers, and the Departments of History, Sociology, Government, and Economics. It was dedicated in December 1973 as Richard Lee Morton Hall to honor the long-time William & Mary professor and historian. Ever since Morton Hall was constructed, there have been countless renovations to help maintain it.
