University of St. Thomas Biology Department Greenhouses

The Biology Department at the University of St. Thomas maintains two greenhouses on the St. Paul campus.  One greenhouse is attached to Owens Science Hall at the corner of Grand and Cretin Avenues.  With its three large rooms and additional lighting, it is the primary greenhouse for course and research use. 

The second greenhouse is located in the John Roach Center for Liberals Arts on the corner of Summit and Cleveland Avenues.  Its eye-catching geometric design provides interior space for a tropical room, an arid room and additional research space.
