Chemistry and Biochemistry Laboratory Facilities

The University’s proximity to the lakes, rivers and mountains of New Hampshire gives students access to a unique natural laboratory.  Small class sizes mean a favorable student to faculty ratio, with  faculty focused on undergraduate education. Resources in the department include dedicated space for undergraduate research and multimedia technology resources.
