The Wilson Science Center is the single largest capital construction project in University history. Construction began on the facility in January of 2021 and the building will open this month for Spring 2022 Semester classes.
The science center project includes a complete renovation of the previous 29,000-square-foot facility, which was built in 1969, as well as an 18,000-square-foot addition on the west side.
The Wilson Science Center will house the University’s natural and health science programs, including biology, environmental sciences, chemistry, health sciences, physics and psychology. It includes state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories as well as dedicated research areas.
