Work will commence soon on AU's new Hall of Science, a three-story, 95,000 Gross Floor Area (GFA), state-of-the-art facility that relocates the university's biology, environmental sciences, chemistry, and neuroscience departments to a modern, centralized location. By bringing together these programs, the project will foster collaboration across various disciplines through shared space and research laboratories. The building is on track to receive Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification, a benefit to the campus, neighborhood, and District of Columbia.
