Hugh Jones Hall, known as Jones Hall, is located on the "new campus" of the College of William and Mary at 231 Ukrop Way between Small Hall and Morton Hall. It houses the College's Office of Information Technology and the Math Department. Jones Hall was constructed between 1968 and 1969 and opened for the 1969 summer session with 25 classrooms and 60,000 square feet of space. The Computer Center was located in the basement, the Math Department on the main floor, philosophy and government on the second floor, and business administration on the third floor.

The academic building was named in honor of Rev. Hugh Jones Professor of Natural Philosophy and Mathematics (1717-1721) on Charter Day, February 7, 1970. The School of Education replaced the Philosophy Department in 1976, which moved out of Jones Hall and into New Rogers Hall. During the summer of that same year, the second floor was renovated and additional offices and testing and observation rooms were constructed for the School of Education. In June 2010, the School of Education vacated its quarters in Jones and moved to it's newly constructed 113,000 sq. foot building located through the College Woods at the northwest edge of campus on Monticello Avenue.
