New sciences building officially opens at UAlbany’s Harriman Campus

The expansion of the University at Albany on the Harriman Office Campus continues with a new science building.

The building has been open and operating for months, but the official ceremony was held on Wednesday.

The facility cost $180 million and houses the Atmospheric Sciences, Emergency Preparedness and Cybersecurity departments.

The center also encourages both student and faculty research and innovation.

"We were also able to dream big by designing a capital project that would serve as our signature New York SUNY 2020 investment, and that dream and that investment became that building where we are all today," said UAlbany President Havidán Rodríguez.

The center had been in the works for a decade.
