Instructional chemistry laboratories for the chemistry department are located in building 36 (Science and Health) for CHM 151L and 152L and building 17 (Science Lab Facility) for all other labs. Chemistry stores is located in room 103A on the first floor of building 36 and provides replacement glassware, equipment, and supplies to NAU staff and faculty. Contact Kurt Ristinen at for information on available stock and billing. Instrumentation supporting instructional laboratories is located primarily in room 218 on the second floor of the Science Lab Facility (17). Contact Marty Mihay (17-218B) at for information on instrumentation. For information on the general chemistry laboratories (CHM 151L & 152L) contact John Nauman (36-424) at . For information on the CHM 130L, 230L, 235L, and 238L contact Malia D Rodriguez (17-212B). All chemistry offices except for Mrs. Rodriguez and Mr. Mihay are now located on the third and fourth floors of building 36. Most chemistry lectures will also meet in building 36. The old chemistry building (20) is no longer used by the chemistry department.

CHM 151L labs meet in rooms 314, 315, and 316 of building 36 and CHM 152L labs meet in rooms 414, 415, and 416 of building 36. CHM235L meets in room 220 and 224 of building 17. The other instructional labs meet in the following rooms: CHM 230L-228, 238L-209, 320L-204, 338L-205, 425L-201, 442L-201, 450L-205, and 460L-204.

There are open computer labs in building 17 (rooms 221 and 207) that are available for students enrolled in chemistry classes but they may be reserved for lab courses during lab times. Printing in these labs is billed through the campus ITS print billing system at a rate of 10 cents a page. 

Grades for CHM 151L, 152L, and 235L are posted on the web. You can view your grades by clicking on the "Check Your Grades" box above.

At the end of the semester you can fill out an evaluation form for your lab course using the link above. Your TA will provide a survey ID# for the evaluation form by your TA and will fill out the evaluation in lab before taking your lab final (the TA or lab instructor may change this time as needed). The “Lab Evaluation Login” located bottom-left in the above table is used to evaluate various aspects of your lab from the TA to availability of supplies but not the faculty member assigned as the instructor for your lab. The faculty lab instructor is evaluated using the standard NAU Course Evaluation that you will be emailed a link to the evaluation form. Thanks so much for your input into this process. We value your feedback!
