). The building has over 10,000 square feet of laboratory space. This space is divided almost evenly into teaching laboratories and student-faculty research
In addition to communal research laboratory space, each faculty member has his/her own personal research laboratory.

Students also have access to a departmental computing center, which houses five fully networked modern microcomputers equipped with software packages specifically suited for scientific data analysis, molecular graphics, and science report preparation.
