Small Hall is home to the Department of Physics. The white dome on the roof of Small is the observatory, which is used by the Astronomy classes and is open to the public for special occasions. A new addition to Small Hall houses William & Mary’s own ultra-high field nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer laboratory, one of few in the nation. The power generated is the same as a one-ton tanker truck hitting a brick wall at 40 miles per hour! With this laboratory, William & Mary is able to collaborate with national and international institutions and corporations to conduct research in science and medicine. Small Hall is also home to William & Mary’s Makerspace. All students have access to a variety of tools like 3D printers, laser cutters, and much more – all free for students to use!
