Featuring highly interactive teaching and research spaces, the new building ensures Berkeley’s continued preeminence in research and teaching in the physical sciences. Included are state-of-the-art facilities for a vast spectrum of research in astronomy and cosmology and a rooftop teaching observatory used for general observing by both undergraduates and the general public.
Campbell Hall was made possible by public-private funding, with major funding provided by:
