The University of North Carolina Wilmington opened the $66 million Veterans Hall in August of 2020. Housing the College of Health and Human Services, the 145,000-sf facility accommodates programs in nursing, social work, allied health, and exercise science. Designed by EYP Architecture & Engineering, the technology-enabled building features problem-based learning spaces, simulation training suites, an anatomy and physiology lab equipped with virtual cadaver systems, and five active learning classrooms that can be easily converted to accommodate lecture-based instruction. Veterans Hall also offers lab and classroom space for the departments of chemistry and biochemistry, as well as housing a student commons, the Center for Healthy Communities, the Center for Workforce Development, and the university's Military Affairs office. The project team included Balfour Beatty Construction as construction manager at risk and RMF Engineering as commissioning agent. Ground was broken on Veterans Hall in early 2018.
