The Hurley Convergence Center or the “HCC,” finished construction in the fall of 2014. It is named after Richard C. Hurley, who was the 9th president of the University of Mary Washington. Hurley came to attain the office in 2010, and served his term until 2016, after he served as the Vice president of the administration and the chief financial officer. Before his term in office he served as acting president twice, first from 2007-2008 and the second time in the spring of 2010.
Open 24 hours a day, the HCC is known as the academic commons where students can study individually at the leaf tables, in groups in the conference rooms, or just hang out. The HCC also hosts numerous clubs in the basement auditorium, and is home to the Digital, Speaking, and Writing Center, the Multimedia Editing Lab, and the I.T. help desk.
