For Visitors


The Wellesley College Science Center sits atop "Observatory Hill"  and shares that space with the Whitin Observatory and Observatory House. 

Visitors are welcome at the Science Center during regular business hours (M-F, 8.30am - 4.30pm, excluding holidays) and must be escorted at all times by a member of the Campus Community.  Visitors are asked to check in on arrival with the Science Center Office, located in the Mini-focus on level 1.

The Science Center comprises four buildings: the Margaret Fergusson Greenhouses; Sage Hall; the Laboratory Wing; and the E-wing.  The Science Center serves as the home of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics at Wellesley College, and houses all the science departments and programs offered at the College.
