Known as the Natural Science Building when it was built in 1924, the Physics & Astronomy Building is one of the oldest buildings on campus. When it was under construction, the stone masons on the project added a unique touch by carving gargoyles on the building exterior. Although many are covered by ivy, you may see Old Bill with his large mustache, the boy with a toothache and a two-headed gargoyle. The doorways also have carvings surrounding the framework.

This video will take you on a tour of the newly renovated atrium within the Physics & Astronomy building. This new space offers a comfortable and modern collaborative working environment.
