This project will construct a new facility to expand and relocate the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. The project also includes razing the southeast wing of Seashore Hall, allowing for construction of the new building, which will provide a direct connection to Spence Labs. The remainder of Seashore Hall will be taken down at a later date. 

The new building will include two classrooms, 14 cutting-edge labs for human research, student learning commons, conference rooms, and breakout rooms designed to augment instruction during the day and provide study space in the evenings. The facility also houses faculty offices and graduate student workspace.
