Facilities

Within the Faculty of Science, there are outstanding teaching and research facilities including the Math Learning Centre, the Bonne Bay Marine Station and the Ocean Sciences Centre.

The Mathematics Learning Centre provides professional support to students challenged by the transition from high school to post-secondary mathematics. In addition to assessing the mathematics ability of incoming students and to developing and offering programs to address deficiencies and make that transition smooth, the Centre works more broadly to address issues related to mathematics education.

The Bonne Bay Marine Station, located on Newfoundland's west coast, is aBonne Bay world-class facility offering a host of services to students, researchers, educators and the general public. Equipped with teaching and research laboratories, library/resource centre, multimedia theatre, aquarium, residence accommodations, and small boats, the station offers students and researchers a first-rate facility for marine ecosystem research. The Biology Department offers several undergraduate field courses here each year. The station is surrounded by Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site. The Bonne Bay area exhibits unparalleled diversity of habitat, marine plants, fish and invertebrates.

The Ocean Sciences Centre is a cold ocean research facility located in Logy Bay,OSC
about 10 minutes from the St. John's campus. It is an ideal location for shore-based studies of cold ocean processes, including sub-arctic and arctic organisms, aquaculture, fisheries ecosystems and hydrocarbon pollution. Memorial welcomes visitors to check out a variety of marine life at the Centre, including our harp seals. Major areas of harp seal study include cognitive behaviour and animal hormone fluctuations. The Ocean Sciences Centre is home for the Department of Ocean Sciences, our newest department in the Faculty of Science.

 

The Faculty of Science plays a role in many of the University's teaching and research facilities, including the CREAIT Network, the Botanical Garden and Harlow Campus.

The pan-university Core Research Equipment and Instrument Training (CREAIT) Network is designed to maximize the impact of Memorial's institutional investments in research through enhanced access to and utilization of major research equipment. CREAIT consists of ten interconnected satellites across the St. John's campus, and is responsible for maintaining and operating thematic clusters of multi-user equipment.

The Memorial University Botanical Garden comprises ten acres of cultivated gardens and 100 acres of natural habitat. It undertakes and provides opportunities for biological, ecological, and horticultural education and research for the University, the general public, school children and other organized groups. Research activities include rare plant conservation, site restoration, invasive species, non-timber forest products, and medicinal and ornamental plant research and development.

The Harlow Campus of Memorial University is used by our professionalHarlow schools and academic departments to offer programs, normally of one semester in length. Harlow is located in Old Harlow, Essex, UK, midway between London and Cambridge. It is linked to both cities by road and railway. The campus consists of a group of 19th-century buildings and has accomodations for 51 students. The Biology Department offers field courses at Harlow Campus every year in May.
