Equipment and Facilities


The St. Catherine University Biology Department Laboratories are found on the lower level of Mendel Hall. Faculty offices are also found on this level as well as the first and second floors of Mendel Hall.

Our laboratories are designed for small class sizes and are taught by the faculty, not someone you are unfamiliar with.

Here in the Biology Department we take laboratory safety very seriously. This is why we have developed a comprehensive Lab Safety Program that includes Lab Safety Procedures, a Blood Borne Pathogen Plan and Hazardous Waste Disposal Guidelines.

Please look over our safety page and make yourself aware of lab safety as we all benefit from safe laboratory environments. Learn more »
