Chemistry Building

Home to a wealth of educational opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students

Home to the Department of Chemistry on campus, the Chemistry Building is a 280,000-square-foot five-floor building right in the center of campus. Approximately 60% of the building is devoted to research laboratories, instrument facilities and supporting shops. Graduate students have 24-hour access to the building, including research laboratories, offices and computer labs.  

The Department of Chemistry moved into the building when construction was initially completed in 1964. In 2005, the building received another expansion to enhance educational opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students. The ability to conduct interdisciplinary research in chemistry and other fields has been increased by the Biomedical and Physical Sciences (BPS) Building, which is connected to the Chemistry and Biochemistry Buildings.  

Undergraduate students can pursue either a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry or a Bachelor of Art in Chemistry. Interested students can also check out chemistry study options through Lyman Briggs College, as well.
