The Rotunda was designed by Thomas Jefferson as the architectural and academic heart of his community of scholars — the “academical village,” as he called it. Jefferson modeled the Rotunda after the Pantheon in Rome. Construction began in 1822 and was completed in 1826 at a cost of $60,000. Shortly after the Rotunda’s completion, many classes were moved from the first floors of the Pavilions into the Rotunda’s oval rooms. The Rotunda served as the library for more than a century.
