The building, designed by world-renowned and LEED-accredited firm Robert A.M. Stern Architects, LLP, is a state-of-the-art facility, awaiting it's notification of silver LEED Certification and envisions a Gold certification. Miller Hall stands at the Western gateway to the William & Mary campus. The building embodies the school's commitment to sustainability and state-of-the-art environmental standards campus-wide. It personifies the college's entrepreneurial spirit as it inspires leadership and innovation all under one sturdy and environmentally-friendly roof.

William & Mary graduate Alan B. Miller founded Universal Health Services, Inc., the third largest proprietary hospital management company in the United States, in 1978. He will be speaking at the dedication of Alan B. Miller Hall, along with architect Robert Stern.

At a time when the economy was at the brink of disaster, under the leadership of Dean Larry Pulley, the Mason School was still able to leap into its future. As part of a public-private partnership, the Mason Business School Foundation was designated as project leader and responsible for the planning, timing and cost of the operation. The project budget totaled $75 million, $50 million of which was raised in a private capital campaign. Alan B. Miller Hall was finished in time for this fall's classes and within budget.

Since its founding in 1693, The College of William & Mary has shaped some of America's first entrepreneurs and revolutionaries. The Christopher Wren Building, the oldest academic building in the country, sits opposite the new Alan B. Miller Hall, which architecturally melds seamlessly into the campus, but technically heralds the future with its efficient, environmentally-conscious, and sophisticated features.

Alan B. Miller Hall boasts 166,000 square feet of space for instruction, student activity, faculty offices, visiting scholars and research. Miller Hall's sustainability features include:

  • Lighting that is automatically controlled to shut off when not in use
  • Meters that track all energy usage and payment accountability
  • Energy savings that are 20 percent over ASHRAE standard 90.1 (i.e. code) compliance
  • Water savings that are 40 percent over ASHRAE standard compliance
  • Energy Star efficient equipment and appliances
  • Rooftop water collection tank for recycling and irrigation purposes
  • Native and drought-resistant plant species that reduce irrigation requirements
  • Locally sources slate and bricks
  • Bike racks, bus route, locker rooms, and shower facilities that encourage alternative transportation for students.

The Mason School of Business at The College of William & Mary, the second oldest college in the United States, has both strong undergraduate and graduate programs. One out of every six undergraduate students at the college is a business major. Graduate curricula include traditional, flexible and executive MBA programs. Mason graduates are equipped with an arsenal of business tools to help them compete in today's ever-changing economy.

Miller Hall, symbolizing an appropriate beginning for Mason's forward-thinking approach.
