Beginning next semester, a Longwood student who needs help organizing a big paper, needs to meet with an academic coach and needs to add a class will no longer have to visit multiple buildings on opposite ends of campus.

Brock Hall, a new 25,000-square-foot building located between Greenwood Library and Lankford Hall, is the home of Longwood’s new student success center. It is a hub for essential academic support services, including the Center for Academic Success, Writing Center, Office of the Registrar, Office of Financial Aid, Disability Resources, and First Year Experience and Family Programs, as well as the office of the associate vice president for enrollment management and student success.

Visitors explore the building after the ribbon-cutting ceremony. 

The building is named for Joan Perry Brock ’64 and her late husband, Macon Brock, who have been among Longwood’s most dedicated supporters. Brock attended the grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for the building in May and was joined by her two daughters as well as some of her longtime Longwood friends.

“This building, with all of its facilities for how to approach learning processes from many different ways, is going to be used and appreciated by so many students, helping them to attain their maximum potential,” she said. 

The interior was designed with student collaboration and learning styles in mind.

Brock Hall is located between Greenwood Library and Lankford Hall.
