New Facility Building Characteristics
With its iconic and environmentally friendly design, the new Chemistry and Chemical Biology building will become a dynamic entry point to Rutgers’ Busch campus. Welcoming researchers, students, and corporate partners alike, the facilities will foster and support cutting-edge research and help grow the national reputation of the department and educate the next generation of leaders in science.
Located just north of the existing Wright-Rieman Chemistry complex, the new building has been designed with an eye toward fostering collaboration. By combining instructional spaces with state-of-the-art, flexible research spaces, and inviting common areas, it will support the modern educational tools and cross-disciplinary research collaborations that are so critical to the advancement of scientific knowledge.
GREEN is more than just a color.
Everyone knows scarlet, but did you know that GREEN is the other color of Rutgers University?
Just as scarlet represents our school pride, the color green speaks to our commitment to sustainability. Through myriad actions – including implementing one of the most advanced recycling programs in the nation, installing a 6,000 panel solar array on Livingston campus, and following a sustainable purchasing program – Rutgers has proven time and again that ensuring environmental quality for current and future generations isn’t an afterthought, it’s a responsibility we’ve taken to heart.
