New Science Building and Ancillary Projects


The new five-story Science Building will help meet the demand for instruction in the biological and physical sciences, which require specialized, state-of-the-art teaching and laboratory spaces. The new building will replace insufficiently sized and outdated facilities in the San Gabriel, Arroyo Seco, and Camino Real buildings and help align Glendale Community College’s course offerings with the State’s focus on STEM and research-based instruction. The new labs will be designed to comply with current operational safety standards, including those of the American Chemical Society, the highest authority for collegiate chemistry labs. The Science Building will be a signature building for the College and feature strong circulation links to the San Gabriel, Health Sciences, and Camino Real buildings.
