The Glen T. Seaborg Science Complex provides the university’s science community with modern labs, research areas, lecture halls and classrooms.

The complex has two buildings: a new laboratory building and the renovated Luther West Science Building. The primary goal was to create an interdisciplinary science facility that would integrate the university’s ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONCAPACITY2,825COST PER SQ FT$138.25FEATURED IN2002 Architectural Portfolio science-related academic programs into a single building.

In the new science building, the stepped interior atrium encourages social and intellectual interaction in a non-classroom setting.

The 128,000-square-foot science building is northwest of the Luther West Science Building and forms the western edge of a newly defined campus quadrangle.

The facility also has a rotunda that serves as the entry to the Seaborg Center, a new two-chamber greenhouse for research and instruction, and an elevated pedestrian connector that links the center with Jamrich Hall.
