Natural Science and Engineering Research Laboratory (NSERL)

The Natural Science and Engineering Research Laboratory (NSERL) stands without peer on the UT Dallas campus. The four-story, 192,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility cost $85 million to build and will be used, in part, to help draw scientists from across the world and from all disciplines to the labs. About one-third of the research laboratory's space is being reserved for that purpose.


Fossilized limestone columns combine with the seamed metal roof and colorful anodized stainless steel shingles to create a vision of beauty. The terrace is an extension of the food court and allows for outdoor dining.
