Education and Science Center

Science and Education CenterWith more than 150,000 square feet, the three-level $23.1 million Education and Science Center is comprised of two wings and became the largest building on campus in 2003.

The Education Wing connects to the Torrington Science Wing and is home to the Teacher Education Department, University Division, the Career Counseling Center and Academic Skills.

In addition to classrooms and other amenities, the two new wings house research laboratories, offices, computer labs, a tutoring arena, a rooftop greenhouse, three stair towers, an OSHA-compliant chemical storeroom, an atrium, the 150-seat Couch/Renner Lecture Hall and two indoor wells for groundwater monitoring.
