New Chemistry Building

A message from the Dean


We are incredibly excited about the new Chemistry building under construction on Elkhorn Avenue! This state-of-the-art building will include teaching and research facilities that will enhance the educational experience for our students. Approximately 5,000 ODU students take Chemistry each year in preparation for most STEM-H majors. In our new building they will find undergraduate teaching laboratories, a tutoring/active learning center, cutting edge research laboratories, and faculty offices all under one roof. It's going to be an amazing facility. At ODU we will offer a chemistry education experience that will be rivaled by very few schools in the Commonwealth of Virginia. We are transforming science education at ODU and you can help. Please consider supporting our educational and research mission through philanthropy.

- Gail Dodge, Dean of the College of Sciences
