The state-of-the-art Engineering Academic Building for the University of Oklahoma is the final building to complete the Engineering Quadrangle on the Norman campus. The 80,000-square-foot building has become the gathering place for all engineering students, especially in the ground-floor collaboration spaces. This facility houses the Chemistry, Biology and Biomedical Engineering disciplines along with research labs, studio labs, maker spaces, lecture hall, research workspace and other administrative/support spaces.
The central area of activity in the Engineering Academic Building has been designed to be the ground floor collaborative space called the Living Room. Casual and team
interaction, informal meetings and individual studying will occur in a variety of flexible seating and table options. The furniture allows for easy reconfiguration to accommodate student, campus and community events in the space. A grand staircase provides access to the teaching labs on the upper floors, offering students a healthy alternative to the elevator.
This academic building also houses the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, which provides multicultural programs to enhance the diversity of the engineering student body.
