Pauley Science Center

Comprised of state-of-the-art research and teaching labs, classrooms, student study spaces, and faculty offices, the Pauley Science Center embodies Hampden-Sydney’s commitment to excellence in science education. Designed to promote collaboration, the building houses programs in biology, biochemistry, chemistry, environmental science, math and computer science, neuroscience, physics and astronomy, and psychology.

The new building at the corner of College Road and Via Sacra re-defines both this important intersection at the heart of campus as well as the adjacent central green space while respecting an established axis connecting important student residential areas to the north and south. Two parallel wings in the predominant federal style found throughout the historic Hampden-Sydney College campus are joined by a more transparent glazed “hyphen” emphasizing the primary student entrances and showcasing a science atrium space focused on student interaction.
