In about 18 months, Central Washington University’s Science Phase II will become the newest facility on the Ellensburg campus. During this year’s legislative session, $61 million was allocated for the facility, with an additional $6 million to connect the facility to university information, power, and other utilities.

Science Phase II completes a project conceived and launched more than 15 years ago. Science Phase I was completed in 1999. The new facility will house three high-demand programs in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM): the Department of Physics, Department of Geological Sciences, and Center for Excellence in Science and Math Education.
Science II will be built in the parking lot adjacent to the Japanese Garden on the Ellensburg campus. It will join Science I and Dean Halls in the southwest quadrant, known as the "Science Neighborhood."
The next step in the process is finalizing drawings, specifications, and the project timeline, and beginning the process required by the State Environmental Policy Act. The university expects to award a contract for construction by next January.
