New Science Building
Comprised of state-of-the-art research and teaching labs, lab support and material management spaces, classrooms, student study spaces, and faculty offices, the New Science Building will embody Hampden-Sydney’s commitment to excellence in science education. Designed to promote collaboration, the building will house programs in biology, biochemistry, chemistry, environmental science, math and computer science, neuroscience, physics and astronomy, and psychology.
The new building at the corner of College Road and Via Sacra will re-define both this important intersection at the heart of campus as well as the adjacent central green space while respecting an established axis connecting important student residential areas to the north and south. Two parallel wings in the predominant Federal style found throughout the historic Hampden-Sydney College campus will be joined by a more transparent glazed “hyphen” emphasizing the primary student entrances and showcasing a science atrium space focused on student interaction.
