Visiting the Department of Biological Sciences

Visitors must adhere to current COVID-19 guidelines. Read more about virtual visits to campus.

The Department of Biological Sciences administrative office is located on the first floor of Medical Research Building III, immediately inside the library lawn entrance. Our research and teaching laboratories are located in three interconnecting buildings—MRBIII, Medical Center North Learned Lab (U-corridor), and the Molecular Biology Stevenson Center, Building 2.

Most didactic classes in the Department of Biological Sciences are open to visitors who wish to familiarize themselves with the class experience. Contact the chair’s assistant with the dates and times when you will be on campus, and we will find a freshman or sophomore level class for you to observe and to obtain the instructor’s permission. We will send you the location and times of the class and the instructor’s name. Please plan to arrive before class and introduce yourself to the instructor.
