Earth and Planetary Sciences Building

The Earth and Planetary Sciences Building is located to the northeast of Brookings Hall. Aside from laboratories and offices, the building also houses one medium classroom, one small classroom, a computer lab, several teaching laboratories, and the Matthew A. Grossman Museum of mineral specimens and meteorites. The Earth and Planetary Sciences Library is also housed in the building.

The architectural firm of Tsoi/Kobus & Associates of Boston designed the four-level 150,000-square-foot structure. Keeping with the classic Collegiate Gothic style of most other buildings on campus, the structure features Missouri red granite, limestone facing, and a green slate roof. It is the first LEED-certified "green" building at the University.

The following are housed inside the Earth and Planetary Sciences Building:
