Rutgers University is the largest university in New Jersey, serving more than 45,000 undergraduate students and 20,000+ graduate and professional students. Originally chartered as Queen's College in November of 1766, Rutgers is the eighth-oldest college in the United States and one of the nine "Colonial Colleges" chartered before the American Revolution.

The Chemistry & Chemical Biology (CCB) project involves the construction of 145,000-sf, Gold LEED-certified building designed by Flad Architects. The building will house research/lab facilities, an auditorium/conference center, common spaces, meeting rooms, classrooms and instructional support areas.

Core facilities in the CCB building will include a microscopy suite, a class-100 chemistry clean room and laboratories for optical spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography laboratories. Classrooms will provide the latest technology to support teaching and learning. The facility’s modular design and versatile infrastructure will allow reconfiguration of labs and classrooms to respond as technology evolves and the needs of students and faculty change. Common areas are designed to promote collaborations.
