University News: Armory Restoration

Armory Restoration Rendering

For many years, the historic Armory located on what is now Shenandoah University’s main campus has been a significant part of the Northern Shenandoah Valley. From this Armory, thousands from our area served our country in World War II, Korea, Vietnam and Desert Storm. Shenandoah recognizes the significance of this building and we are excited to announce that the restoration of the Armory will include the new home for the university's Veteran Resource Center, as well as the university's new Hub for Innovation, Virtual Reality and Entrepreneurship (HIVE).

Armory Restoration Rendering

The HIVE will be a technology hub, business accelerator, and magnet location for tech business startups and for business expansion and relocation. It is particularly poignant that the HIVE will be located in Winchester’s historic Armory. The renovation of this historic space will honor all those who passed through this building by creating a new and exciting venue that will serve Winchester and the Northern Shenandoah Valley.
