Map it for me

The David J. King Student Health Center at William & Mary is located on Gooch Drive, west of the Lodges. The Eastern Construction Company of Tabb was contracted to build the Health Center in 1972. William & Mary wanted the health center to have 18 beds and emphasize the diagnostic and out-patient service of the facility. The building was completed in 1973 and was named the David J. King Student Health Center. The David King Infirmary was previously located in the building now known as Hunt Hall. A 1,120 square foot addition to the Health Center in 1980 included offices, an examining room, and a pharmacy. This office operates under the Vice President for Student Affairs.
