“Renovations are underway that will allow the Computation Institute and the Department of Computer Science to move onto the second and third floors of John Crerar Library.

“This move is yet another step toward the division’s goal of having every department in new or renovated space by 2022,” said Edward “Rocky” Kolb, dean of the Physical Sciences Division.  

The Computation Institute is a joint initiative between the University and Argonne National Laboratory that advances scientific research through computational methods.  

Currently, the Department of Computer Science is located in Ryerson, and the Computation Institute is based in Searle Chemistry Laboratory.  

Senior lecturer in the computer science department Adam Shaw said that he supports the idea of moving the department to one space.”
