The Science Commons, inside the new Science Complex
The Science Commons, a massive, multi-story atrium, is the heart of the new Science Complex.

Towson University’s new Science Complex opened earlier this year and is now the campus’s largest academic building–home to dozens of laboratories, classrooms and other learning spaces. 

The complex will bolster TU’s nationally recognized STEM programming and will enhance TU’s ability to provide prepared leaders for Maryland’s workforce demands. The Science Complex, which was made possible in part from generous state funding, supports TU’s rapidly growing Fisher College of Science & Mathematics, which has grown by more than 2,000 students since 1997. 

The project began in 2018 and will have its public grand opening on Friday, Oct. 1. Classes have already been held inside the new building.
