The LSC floor plans
For diagrams of the room numbers (to help you find a classroom or lab), click here.
The floor plans presented here give an idea of the overall layout of the building, as well as some details about individual spaces. Please remember that the building is a work in progress, so nothing is final until it is, well, finalized. These are the most recent versions of plans that we have in our possession.
Ground Floor - Vivarium, Materials Management, Anatomy and Physiology Lab, Field Suite
First Floor - Physics, Computing Sciences, Atrium and Coffee Shop
Second Floor - Biology Structure and Function, Neuroscience, Mathematics, Aquatics, Imaging, Administration
Third Floor - Biochemistry, Cell, and Molecular Biology, Mathematics
Fourth Floor - Chemistry
Roof - Greenhouse, View Deck
The rooms are color coded as follows:
Blue: Research Laboratories. The research laboratories on this floor will be populated by faculty from Neuroscience (leftmost block) and Biological Structure and Function.
Green: Teaching Laboratories. The teaching labs on this floor will house Neuroscience, Physiology, Anatomy, Introductory Biology, and an assortment of courses.
Yellow: Classrooms. On this floor, there will be two larger classrooms (each with multimedia capabilities) and two smaller studio/seminar-type classrooms.
Brown: Offices. Smaller offices will house faculty, while one large office will house the Administrative Assistants of all departments.
Orange: Common spaces. These common spaces are designed to provide a welcoming and comfortable space between and among faculty and students. These "orange spaces" are perhaps one of the most exciting and welcome additions to our existing facility.
Note that there are many orange spaces scattered across the building. These include spaces outside faculty offices (= "tutorial spaces"), outside the research laboratories (which research students can call "home"), at the ends of hallways (designed as informal gathering spaces), and a large "tea room" in the heart of the building.
Light Gray: Support/Equipment/Prep spaces for labs. On this floor, these spaces will include the Imaging facility and the Aquatic Facility.
Dark Gray: bathrooms, elevators, shafts, etc.
