Newly opened for Summer 2012 courses, the UVU Science Building highlights the school's mission to continuing academic excellence. The UVU Press Release for the Science Building, published April 23, 2012, states "The facility provides students, faculty and staff with much-needed breathing room that includes 27 laboratory classrooms, 18 lecture rooms, 12 research laboratories, a rooftop greenhouse and a 400-seat auditorium, the largest on campus. There are also 57 offices for faculty and staff, small seminar rooms to facilitate group discussions and spaces for cross-disciplinary collaborations." The building features study rooms to the west side that have glass whiteboards as well as windows spanning the entire height of the towers. In addition, ZOOL 2320 students can enjoy the new Anatomy Lab, which has vents to decrease the concentration of Phenol in the air.
