The Science Complex at Sacramento State

Encouraging Discovery, Inspiring Innovation, Advancing Knowledge

Take a virtual tour of the Science Complex Planetarium

The future of science education is here. Sacramento State is building a new Science Complex, the campus’ first newly constructed academic building since Mariposa Hall in 2000. The Science Complex will deliver immersive learning opportunities that prepare graduates who are ready to take on the world.

Learning and study spaces designed to promote peer-to-peer interaction, teaching labs featuring the latest technology and equipment, and an observatory and planetarium created with the community in mind, combine to create a hub where discovery happens. And it will position Sacramento State as a regional resource for science and technology knowledge.

Help us build the new hub for science innovation

The California State University system has committed $71 million in funding toward the $91 million Science Center facility. But it is not enough to equip the spaces students need to become the innovative next generation of trailblazers.

Sacramento State is seeking $20 million in private funds for enhancements to create extraordinary settings for teaching and learning.
