About the Academic Sciences Building
The Academic Sciences Building is a three-story 125,000-square-foot structure that will serve as the new home for five departments within the College of Arts & Sciences: Biological Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Geosciences, Physics & Astronomy and Psychological Sciences. Budgeted at $100 million, it was partially funded by a $12.5 million appropriation approved by the Texas Legislature during the 87th Legislative Session, as well as Higher Education funding. A groundbreaking ceremony was held Dec. 15, 2021, and the building is scheduled for completion in December of this year.
