Chapman Hall

Dedicated in 2006, Chapman was built as part of the Carolina Physical Science Complex, one of the largest construction projects in the university's history. When it opened, Chapman Hall included classroom and laboratory space for several departments, including physics, astronomy, math, and marine sciences. It also included a rooftop observatory and control room for telescopes operated by UNC—Chapel Hill in Chile and South Africa. The building is named for Max C. Chapman Jr., a 1966 graduate of Carolina who went on to a successful career on Wall Street and who donated $5 million in support of its construction.
