Year Built 

Science Research and Teaching Center (SRTC) occupies portions of two blocks. One is between SW Tenth, Eleventh, the Mill Street right-of-way and the Montgomery Street right-of-way. The building extends south across the Montgomery Street right-of-way. Science One is just to the north, the Harrison Street Building and the North/South Greenhouses to the south, and the student residence Joseph C. Blumel Hall to the west. 

SRTC has four-floors above ground, and two basement levels. An accessible covered sky-bridge extends from the second floor at the north end to the second floor of Science Building 1. Wheelchair access to SRTC is located on both the southwest and southeast corners of the building.

Campbell-Michael-Yost designed the building in the new brutalism style, which was completed on November 1, 1971 for a total cost of $7.045 million. Originally the building included two levels of parking but in 1975 these areas were converted into laboratory and office space. A recent hazardous materials building addition and a remodel and seismic upgrades to the main building were designed by IDC Architects and completed in 2011.
