UWM celebrates a milestone for new chemistry building

Dozens of guests gathered Thursday, Jan. 26, for a ceremony to celebrate the topping off of the new chemistry building under construction on UWM’s main campus.

The new four-story, 163,400-square-foot building will serve as a gateway to the STEM buildings and departments that house those subjects – science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It will include modern labs and classrooms for the roughly 5,000 UWM students who take chemistry and biochemistry classes each year from all majors.

The building is expected to be completed by late 2023 or early 2024.
