A Tour of Goddard Hall, Then and Now

A Tour of Goddard Hall, Then and Now

A major renovation of Goddard Hall is nearly complete. When all is said and done, the new Undergraduate Life Sciences Laboratory Center at WPI will comprise 21,300 square feet of laboratories and will feature vibrant, open, and technology-rich spaces that provide a host of new curricular opportunities. The Center will become WPI’s main facility for undergraduate teaching and research in biology and biotechnology, biomedical engineering, chemistry and biochemistry, and chemical engineering. The renovation and integration of these labs was made possible by a $6 million gift last year from the George I. Alden Trust.

Originally built in 1965, Goddard Hall is named for one of WPI’s most distinguished alumni, Robert H. Goddard, class of 1908. Known as the father of modern rocketry, Goddard was celebrated on campus last year to honor the 100th anniversary of his graduation from WPI.
