Human Ecology Building, HEB

A Hub for Science and Design

The 89,000-square-foot Human Ecology Building, HEB, provides high-tech research laboratories, versatile, multi-purpose classrooms, studios for drawing, design, and fabrication, a spacious gallery to display student and faculty works, and community spaces and seminar rooms for collaborative projects.

The Human Ecology Building, HEB, is intended to support the interdisciplinary, translational research central to the mission of the College of Human Ecology, as well as provide cutting-edge facilities and equipment for teaching and outreach. The HEB's open floor plan and strategic design invite faculty, students, and staff to reach across disciplines to work on common issues related to the human condition.

The HEB opened in August 2011 for instruction and research and was officially dedicated on Oct. 20, 2011.
