For more than 80 years, Seacobeck Hall was UMW’s main campus dining facility. However, after undergoing four and a half years of renovation, Seacobeck is now the building for the College of Education and the Office of Disability Resources. Seacobeck was specifically designed for education students, from the curriculum lab to the maker lab to the collaboration spaces. The new technology gives students the opportunity to learn about and work on different teaching skills and techniques. For those of you who haven’t wandered its halls, here’s a tour of the newly-renovated Seacobeck Hall.

 In the center of Seacobeck is a unique set of stairs that functions both for students to use as a study space and for connecting the first and second floors.
