UHM unveils renovated biology labs at Edmonson Hall

Biology students have some brand new digs.

The University of Hawaii unveiled its revamped Edmondson Hall on Thursday.

The 42,000-square-foot, four-story building underwent a $15 million renovation and now features state-of-the-art teaching laboratories, lab storage, offices and meeting rooms.

“This is the brand new opening of a renovated space, and we’re thrilled to be in here and be able to give the students a great experience in a nice, new, modern lab,” UH Manoa Biology Lab Coordinator Cheryl Squair said.

The building was originally built in 1961.

There are 1,261 undergraduate and 63 graduate students enrolled to take biology courses in the upcoming fall semester.
