With momentum comes growth.
To ensure innovation and to enhance our programs, the need for an additional academic building is critical. The McIntire expansion will offer versatile spaces that invite collaboration in and out of the classroom.

An Inspired Space
As instruction evolves from lecture-based classes to interactive learning, new labs and flexible classroom spaces will allow students to engage in hands-on discovery while contemporary workspaces will accommodate the needs of our faculty and staff.
A Hub for Innovation
The new building will serve as a hub for collaboration with the School of Medicine and other partners across Grounds. The building’s anticipated design will marry contemporary and traditional architecture and will include dynamic event spaces, labs and technology to foster entrepreneurial ventures and workspaces designed to promote and enable collaboration at McIntire and across UVA.
A Growing Footprint on Grounds
In December 2017, the UVA Board of Visitors approved a proposal for an additional McIntire academic building. Pending approval by the UVA Building and Grounds Committee, the planned building will be constructed at the northeast corner of Ruppel Drive and Jefferson Park Avenue, adjacent to Cobb Hall, directly across the street from Rouss & Robertson Halls.
Together We Will Inspire McIntire’s Next Century
McIntire’s future relies on our ability to create space for innovation, scholarship, and community.
By creating space to support innovative learning, we are preparing students to contribute in significant ways to society. I expect the new building to foster collaboration, peer-to-peer development, and innovation to bring out the best in the students and faculty.
