Zeis Hall

$32 Million Zeis Hall opened in 2009 and is equipped with state-of-the-art teaching and undergraduate research labs.

The Organic and Inorganic Chemistry Teaching Lab incorporates a “room within a room” design for students to perform organic synthesis in the outer space and be able to work on notebook recording or have lab instruction in the inner room.

The design of the General Chemistry Lab and Analytical and Biochemistry Lab include an open floorplan and island benches to enhance collaborative learning.
