Physics Department Facilities
On April 30, 2013, the Governor of NJ recommended the legislature that NJCU be awarded $32,000,000 for a 22,000 square-foot expansion and renovation of the NJCU Science Building for biology, chemistry, physics, and geoscience programs. The upgraded facility will include multipurpose classrooms, seminar and conference rooms, teaching and research laboratories, lab support, an astronomy observatory, student interaction space, computer labs, storage space, equipment and instrumentation rooms, and faculty offices. The Science Building, originally constructed in 1973, had undergone some recent renovation, but needed additional improvements to meet the demands of NJCU's biology, chemistry, physics, and geosciences programs.
The renovated building was fully functioning by January 2018.
