The Botetourt Complex is located on the dead end road which runs southwest off of Campus Drive. It is across from Dupont Hall. This complex was originally built to be a new sorority complex. When the sororities rejected the idea, it became language houses. Later the complex became a regular College dormitory. Construction began on the complex in 1971. In 1972, Unit 9 was used for Project Plus, and the complex was renamed "Botetourt Residences" in 1973. Also in 1973, three language houses opened in the complex: Spanish, French, and German. Project Plus moved out of the complex at the end of 1981 and in 1982, units 1 and 2 were named Spottswood, units 3 and 4 were named Fauquier, and the other units were named after royal governors (Dinwiddie, Gooch, and Nicholson).
