The Science and Technology Center consolidated the sciences at SUNY Fredonia into a single complex consisting of a 96,000 square-foot new building designed to connect both physically and functionally to the existing Houghton Hall Science Building. The result is a unified, welcoming hub for the sciences on the college campus.  

The new facility serves about 500 students moving from lectures to hands-on learning through flexible spaces, including a 120-seat auditorium, and collaborative and applied learning scenarios. The Center encourages interdisciplinary research and teaching, and features a variety of social learning spaces, such as a café, student reading room, outdoor terrace, conference rooms and study alcoves. Also included in the program are a greenhouse and a roof-top observatory.
