The Life Sciences Complex brought the biology, chemistry, and biochemistry departments under one roof for the first time in the University's history. The five-story building was organized into two wings, forming an "L"-shaped configuration. The research wing housed biology research laboratories, lab support offices, conference rooms, and faculty offices. The teaching wing housed biology and chemistry teaching labs, lecture halls, research and technology greenhouses. An atrium, with a cafe, connected the Life Sciences Complex to the Center for Science and Technology.
