Unified Science Center Ascends Toward Scranton Skyline


In 2011, The University of Scranton will open the doors of its 200,000-square-foot unified science center. The above photograph displays the center's construction through early April.
As the new unified science center, in the midst of construction, rises from the pavement between Monroe Avenue and Ridge Row, the accompanying photo and rendering yield a glimpse of The University of Scranton’s bright, expansive future.

In the fall of 2011, the University will open the doors of its 200,000-square-foot science facility, one of the most dynamic, innovative science buildings in the country. 

Outfitted with 22 class and seminar rooms, 34 laboratories and a multistory atrium, the energy-efficient facility will house research and instruction in the natural sciences, including the Biology, Chemistry, Computer Sciences, Mathematics and Physics/EE departments. 

The unified science center will be a fitting home to the University’s rich legacy of science education, and also a center of collaborative learning for all members of the campus and community.
