Project Highlights

This new state of the art lab building on the site of the current McKinly Lab will provide research and teaching spaces for multiple departments including biology, psychology, physics and linguistics along with core facilities and interdisciplinary functions that will serve the entire campus. The building enhances the university’s science quad and is situated to allow for future development within the quad.
