Bloomberg Center for Physics and Astronomy

Building Description:

At 238,000 square feet, the Bloomberg Center for Physics and Astronomy is the largest building ever constructed on the Homewood campus. The building, dedicated on April 23, 1990, is named in honor of Mayor Michael Bloomberg (B.A. 1964, Trustee 1987-2002, Chairman of the Board 1996-2002), whose generosity made the building possible. The Bloomberg Center served as the control center for the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) satellite, which was built at Johns Hopkins University, throughout the duration of the FUSE project. Hopkins physicists today are working in a variety of physical fields, from particle physics to condensed matter subjects. Students can take advantage of the Physics Undergraduate Computer (PUC) Lab, which is only open to students involved in physics.
