New Science and Academic Buildings
UMass Amherst is building a comprehensive science complex on campus. The first building in the complex, the newly completed Integrated Sciences Building, houses 87,000 square feet of new teaching and research labs that integrate the life and chemical sciences. Initial designs are in place for the New Laboratory Science Building, with construction for phases one and two to start in the fall of 2009. The Comprehensive Science Facilities Plan also calls for a Life Science Building, with construction expected to begin in 2014.
Currently, renovations are underway on several existing campus buildings, including Lederle Graduate Research Tower, Goessmann, and Morrill. In addition, a study will assess the feasibility for a new academic building, which would contain classrooms and faculty offices.
A range of CNS shared core facilities may be utilized by off-campus researchers.
