About the Building

Reynolds Hall, a complex located at the heart of the downtown campus, sits on an iconic, riverfront site on the Downtown campus with views of the Monongahela River and direct access to the PRT as well as from Beechurst Avenue. The buildings and the site combine to become a symbol of energy and growth on the campus edge; it will serve as a catalyst for future campus development along the river. With Reynolds Hall, we’re transforming the university, the state and the future of business.

The road to Reynolds Hall: A transformation made possible
by Bob and Laura Reynolds

By creating a business school with environments to capitalize on the talents and skills of our students, as well as faculty, research and learning opportunities, we can open more doors than we ever thought possible.

"It’s no surprise we’ve outgrown our current building. Reynolds Hall shows a promise for the future, offering not only the physical room to grow but the opportunity to grow as professionals. Students will gain the competitive edge they need for success in their future endeavors,” said Cara Thomas, sophomore double-major in accounting and finance, expected to graduate May 2022. 

Progress demands innovation, and the emerging vision for Reynolds Hall realizes widespread impact. We have a unique opportunity to take the business lead in West Virginia to develop an environment with strong communities, meaningful and diverse employment and an attractive setting where people can create fulfilling and vibrant lives.

As both Bob and Laura Reynolds – and the entire WVU community – anticipate the opening of Reynolds Hall, the couple believes it will only be the beginning of a legacy left behind and a dive forward for the future of business and its leaders. 

The Reynolds foresee West Virginia reaping some benefits from the new College.

“It will be a gift that keeps on giving, as it shall attract more people and educate to a higher standard,” Laura Reynolds said. “I think it’s going to trickle on throughout the state and West Virginia will benefit from the high quality of people coming out of the College.

“People have the opportunity to be part of something that's truly transformative to West Virginia University. Opportunities like this might only come once every generation, if you’re lucky.”
