Science Teaching Lab

The Science Teaching Laboratory building has been named the 2013 Outstanding Project in the new construction/addition of a college/university science center category by Learning by Design, a prestigious magazine that publishes outstanding pre-K to 12 and college/university projects.

The four-story, 105,686-square-foot facility provides undergraduate biology and chemistry teaching labs for 659 students on levels one through three and graduate and postgraduate labs on level four in addition to shell space for future research use. Lobbies are located throughout the building to encourage collaboration and interaction.
