Virginia-Cleveland Hall

As Hampton University’s oldest women’s residence hall, Cleveland Hall is a historical and beautiful building built on the bank of the Hampton River. Virginia Cleveland Hall is one of two buildings on campus designed by Richard Morris Hunt, a distinguished 19th century architect. The other building designed by Hunt is the Academy Building. Hunt is best known for designing the pedestal for the Statue of Liberty and the Biltmore Estate, and for his work on the Metropolitan Museum of Art. There is an abundance of history shared by many who have dwelled here in the past. Virginia Cleveland’s rooms allow the residents ample space for living. The upstairs lobby is now used for a study area. The building features a common area which includes a snack room, microwave, refrigerator and stove that the students may use.
