Our Facilities

The Chemistry Department occupies 35,000 square feet on the 2nd and 3rd floors of Mendel Hall at Villanova University. The Department has suites of instructional laboratories, each designed for a different subdiscipline of chemistry with specialized instrumentation and facilities. In particular, Chemistry majors are taught in their own specialized laboratory space complete with modern instrumentation, promoting faculty-student interactions and personalized instruction.

Mendel Hall was expanded and completely renovated in 1998. The building is completely WiFi enabled, and all classrooms include Power Point projectors and complete audio/visual facilities.
