The central location for SFRC administration and programs is on the UF campus in Newins-Ziegler Hall (map). Our administrative staff, academic programs, and the majority of our Forest Resources and Conservation staff are located here. We also have a number of laboratories in the building as well as dedicated classroom space.
Reed Lab (map) is the location of our on-campus Geomatics program. This building houses our faculty and staff in Geomatics as well as a Polycom-equipped classroom, student computer laboratory, equipment, and research space.
Our Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences program recently acquired space in McCarty Hall B (map) for the NMFS Recruiting, Research, and Training (RTR) program that was awarded to the SFRC in late 2011. There is a student study/work space as well as a conference room and offices for faculty to use while on campus.
