Chemistry Department Facilities

The Chemistry department is located in the Science & Engineering Building, Building 50. This facility provides teaching and research facilities for the departments of Chemistry, Physics, Building Construction Management, and Engineering (Civil, Mechanical, and Electrical).


The building includes two state-of-the-art lecture halls, a timber-woodland laboratory, a construction and structural materials laboratory, a state-of-the-art analytical chemistry laboratory, and research laboratories for Chemistry and Physics faculty.


The chemistry labs and individual offices are situated on the second and third floor of the building in the south wing. Lecture halls and classrooms (including a 125-seat auditorium with a fume hood) are located on the first floor.


In 2020, Chemistry expanded and renovated more than 20,000 square feet to provide six new research laboratories, three new teaching laboratories, a computer laboratory, a classroom for upper-level lectures, a cold room, an autoclave room, two student study areas, a locker room, a receiving room, a new ACS Chemistry Club room, a new Department office, and 16 new faculty/staff offices. Chemistry now has ~63,000 sq. ft. of space providing room for faculty and student growth.
