Photo Essay | Waitzer Hall
Students and staff alike are celebrating the opening of Waitzer Hall, the newest addition to the EVMS campus. The 11-story, glass-enclosed structure brings expanded capacity for education, study, student support and administrative space. Financed through philanthropy and state support, the $80 million structure is a testament to the school’s ever-growing value to the community.
Waitzer Hall is EVMS’ newest building.
It sits on the corner of campus overlooking the
intersection of Brambleton and Colley avenues and includes dramatic views of downtown Norfolk and
the surrounding waterfront.
A three-story education podium includes an expansive classroom on each level. As the COVID-19 vaccine became available, the classrooms have hosted vaccination clinics for student, staff and EVMS Medical Group patents.
The new building incorporates much-needed educational and study space as well as spacious common areas where students will be able to meet and mix — once COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed.
Students enjoy floor to ceiling windows which provide natural light for study carrels. Another perk for students is a wellness center which includes space for students to improve both mind and body.
