Botetourt Complex

  • Botetourt Complex
    Botetourt Complex
    Situated next to the Matoaka Woods Nature Center, the Botetourt Complex is comprised of five residence halls: Dinwiddie, Fauquier, Gooch, Nicholson and Spotswood.

Welcome to the Botetourt (pronounced Bot-eh-tot) Complex! The Complex is comprised of five residence halls: Dinwiddie, Fauquier, Gooch, Nicholson and Spotswood. Botetourt situated next to the Matoaka Woods Nature Center, the Dining Commons (the "Caf"), New Campus and the Recreational Center. Due to the small size, the halls tend to be more like family groups than other freshman halls. Upper-level Resident Assistants reside in each hall with about 20 residents per staff member. Each building has a similar layout with a variety of double, triple and quad rooms. Kitchens, which include a washer and dryer, and one or two large air conditioned lounges are located on the first floor with a laundry room on the second floor. Typically, one lounge is designated for social events and activities and the other lounge is dedicated for studying. Hall Council, the Complex's governing body, determines the purpose of each lounge consistent with the philosophy of self-determination. Residents are often found in the social lounges watching television, playing games, or just hanging out. The Complex's duty office is located in Fauquier Hall.

The Botetourt Complex opened in 1972 and was originally intended for the sororities. The five halls were named after former Virginia Governors.
