One of the prime examples of our state-of-the-art facilities is the $56.3 million, 121,000-gross-square-foot Robert H.N. Ho Science Center.
The center is designed to enhance the sciences, encourage multidisciplinary fields of study, teach students collaborative learning, and recognize the importance of community outreach.
The interdisciplinary science center is named in honor of Robert Hung Ngai Ho '56, who confirmed a commitment of $27 million to the project. It was designed by Shepley Bulfinch Richardson and Abbot Architects of Boston.
It houses the environmental studies
, and physics and astronomy
departments and programs, and part of the biology
department. It also features the Ho Tung Visualization Lab
, a greenhouse, 10 walk-in environmental chambers, a cold room, dark rooms, and a radioactivity lab.
