Three sets of buildings comprise the Academic Complex, which provides 245,000 square feet of classroom and lab space. In addition, academic units house faculty and staff offices here. The facilities have earned a LEED gold certification, incorporating recycled materials used from the site, alternative energy features, natural and man-made sun screens, and showers for those who walk or ride their bikes to work. Each facility uses the same mix of building materials, has similar layout, and has an icon tower with observation decks and team rooms. The facilities also enclose unique courtyard areas where students can relax and gather.
