Virtual Tour: Fitzhugh Hall
Fitzhugh Hall, named for the first President of Belhaven University, Dr. Louis Fitzhugh (1884-1904), was originally part of the first building constructed at the present College site. A fire in 1927 gutted the main section of the building, leaving two wings which became Preston and Fitzhugh Hall.
For over 100 years, students have lived and learned in Fitzhugh Hall. It has housed residence hall rooms, academic classrooms, a swimming pool, a coffee shop, the home economics department, faculty and administrative offices, science and math labs, our technology equipment, and athletic offices.
Belhaven University Relations and Web Services are now on the first floor with the academic Department of Communications. The Office of Alumni and Development have their home on the second floor and the Math Department hold a majority of the offices and classrooms on the third floor of Fitzhugh’s west wing. The sciences are housed in the east wing including classrooms, labs and faculty offices.
