Alfred Nobel Hall of Science

Academic building

Completed in 1963 (renovated and Carlson Pavilion added in 2000), it is the home of the natural sciences (biology, chemistry, geology, and geography departments). When plans for a new science building were being prepared in the early 1960s, College officials wrote to the Nobel Foundation in Stockholm, Sweden, asking permission to name the building as a memorial to the great Swedish inventor and philanthropist. Permission was granted and the building’s dedication ceremony on May 4, 1963, included 26 Nobel laureates (the largest single gathering outside of Sweden—where the prizes are awarded—up to that point) as well as representatives from the foundation, who met with Gustavus officials to establish the College’s first Nobel Conference two years later.
