Regents Hall

3700 O St. NW

Regents Hall houses most of faculty for the biology, chemistry and physics departments along with labs, classrooms and open communal spaces for students in the sciences.

The new facility also is home to Georgetown’s Institute for Soft Matter Synthesis and Metrology, funded in part through a $6.9 million grant from the National Institutes of Standards and Technology. The institute conducts research into materials that are neither liquids nor solids, such as liquid crystals, gels, colloids, polymers and foams.
