About This Project

The Marine Studies Initiative Building is a LEED Silver, 72,000 square foot state-of-the-art classroom and laboratory building located on the Oregon State University Hatfield Marine Science Center campus. A 3-story core building includes research & teaching labs, classrooms, and office space. It connects to a 2-story structure that features community space, a 250-person auditorium, an “innovation lab” and other facilities. At a height of 47 feet, the building’s roof is designed to serve as a vertical evacuation site for more than 900 people if a tsunami strikes the area. In addition to housing Marine Studies Initiative programs, the new building provides headquarters for OSU’s nationally recognized Marine Mammal Institute and its marine genetics and genomics programs.
