Parker H. Petit Science Center
The Parker H. Petit Science Center, situated in downtown Atlanta, decompresses teaching and research space filled to capacity by introducing new, state-of-the-art labs equipped to accommodate GSU's diverse science program.
In addition to basic science teaching and research labs for the Colleges of Arts and Sciences and Health and Human Sciences, the building also houses a 20,000-SF stand-alone vivarium and a working Bio-Safety Level 4 suite, one of the few university-based BSL-4 labs in the country.
The soaring glass entrance distinguishes the Science Center within its urban context, serving both as a landmark for the east side of the campus and an anchor for GSU's science zone.
