Sampson Hoffland Laboratories
Sampson Hoffland Laboratories houses our chemistry and biology departments. Built to environmentally sound LEED standards, Sampson Hoffland features 17 teaching labs and faculty-student research areas, along with study areas adjacent to faculty offices.
Sampson Hoffland is connected to the Valders Hall of Science and is located across from Ylvisaker Hall.
- Student study areas account for more than 4,800 square feet.
- Specialized laboratories dedicated to developmental biology, cell culture, transmission and scanning electron microscopy, light microscopy, and digital image processing.
- Overholt Human Anatomy Laboratory: Modern and secure space for studying human anatomy through cadaver dissection.
- Developmental/Cell Biology laboratory: 2,000 square foot facility that provides teaching and research space.
- LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Building: Contains rain garden to limit runoff going to storm water system, protection of native habitat (oak savanna), low volatile organic compounds, and low-emissivity glass (allows heat in during winter and keeps it out in summer). In addition, the building was built with sustainable resources.
