New home for the physical sciences
The new Physical Sciences Building, a joint project of the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Engineering, was officially completed Nov. 19. While the building will not be fully occupied until the end of January, some of the labs and classrooms were already in use during the fall semester.
The building includes more than 80 research and teaching laboratories, a 120-seat auditorium, and new meeting, dining and gathering spaces. It is designed to enhance interdisciplinary research, and will accommodate 15-20 research groups in the Departments of Physics and of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, and the School of Applied and Engineering Physics.
