Andrews Hall is located on the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) campus of the College of William and Mary in Gloucester, Virginia. It is named for the late Virginia Senator Hunter B. Andrews and his wife, Cynthia, both of whom shared a passion for higher education and Marine Science. The building is a "state-of-the-art 4-story building that includes 39 laboratories, a distance-learning classroom, an electronics shop, conference rooms, and spaces for faculty, technicians, students, and visiting scientists. It currently houses programs to enhance aquaculture, better manage blue crabs, restore sea grass, track contaminants, control invasive species, model Chesapeake Bay dynamics, unravel food webs, understand climate change, explore alternative energy, and develop autonomous underwater vehicles, among many other programs."[1] The building was designed by Clark Nexsen Architecture and Engineering and built by W.M. Jordan Company.

The building was dedicated on April 16, 2009 with William and Mary President W. Taylor Reveley, Virginia State Senator Tommy Norment, Jr., Virginia Attorney General William Mims, Clerk of the Virginia Senate Susan Clark Schaar, Rector of the Board of Visitors Michael Powell, Mrs. Cynthia Andrews, Cabell Perrot, Delegate Harvey Morgan, Chuck McCarthey of W.M.
