'Millington Hall is located on Landrum Drive (formerly Old Campus Drive), east of Swem Library. The building was named for John Millington and it is the home of both the Biology and Psychology Departments.

Construction began on Millington Hall in 1966 and was completed in 1968, opening for use on May 4 of that year. There are three large wings of the building, with an auditorium occupying one wing. Greenhouses on the roof of the biology wing and an electron microscope were omitted from plans at the time to cut construction costs. The building also contains individual research labs for the faculty, an herbarium, six controlled-environment rooms, and a woodworking shop.

The botanical lab was built on the roof of the building during the summer of 1969. A greenhouse complex was built on the roof in 1970 to replace the old greenhouses at Tyler Hall and Washington Hall.
