A classroom building located on the College of Southern Nevada Charleston Campus that houses a variety of science disciplines.

The L-shaped building contains 16 teaching labs, 17 lecture classrooms and a distance education studio. The facility is complete with faculty offices, administration areas and student spaces.

The building exhibits sustainable practices in architecture and the sciences. Most notably, the design limits the impact of the Las Vegas climate through the use of shading elements that minimize the daily heat gain of the facility.

This building is home to the Departments of Mathematics, Physical Sciences and Biological Sciences as well as School of Science and Mathematics and School of Education, Behavioral and Social Sciences offices.
