Chernoff Hall

Established through the efforts of the Chernoff family, this $59 million, state of the art facility has been home to the Department of Chemistry since its completion in the Fall of 2002.

Located on Bader Lane across from Victoria Hall (on the site of the former St. Lawrence Building, which was torn down to make room for the new construction), this five-floor structure houses both "wet" sections (laboratory-based) and "dry" sections (administrative-based). Of its more than 14,000 square metres of space, more than 5,000m² is devoted to lab space.

The project was accomplished through the "Campaign For Queen's" with the support of the Ontario Government SuperBuild program, the Ontario Innovation Trust, and the Canada Foundation for Innovation, as well as from private donations, most notably from the Chernoff family.
