a short history
Ever since its first location in the original building of the Illinois Industrial University, Chemistry's facilities have been growing and adapting to the changing needs of the department, its faculty, and its students. Harker Hall, now home to the University of Illinois Foundation, was originally built for Chemistry laboratories and is now the oldest building on campus.
Currently, the Department of Chemistry has its classrooms, offices, and state-of-the-art laboratories spread out over four buildings, all situated on or near Matthews Avenue in the heart of the Illinois campus. Historic Noyes Laboratory, Chem Annex, Roger Adams Laboratory, and the Chemical and Life Science Laboratory house the Department and it's facilities, including the Chemistry Library, the NMR Laboratory, X-Ray Diffraction Laboratory, and the Cell Media Facility. In addition, our award winning faculty maintain laboratories where cutting edge research and education takes place every day.
