Chemistry @ Colgate


Wynn HallThe Department of Chemistry is housed in Wynn Hall (completed in 1979), which contains approximately 10,000 square feet of laboratory space. Approximately half of the laboratory space is devoted to teaching laboratories, including a modern $1.5 million general chemistry teaching laboratory completed in 1993. The remaining laboratory space is devoted to student-faculty research. In addition to communal research laboratory space, each faculty member has his/her own personal research laboratory. The department is well-equipped with a wide range of modern instrumentation (see the next section for a complete listing). All of our research facilities are available to our undergraduate students. Students also have access to a departmental computing center, which houses 5 fully networked modern microcomputers equipped with software packages specifically suited for scientific data analysis, molecular graphics, and science report preparation.
