The Advanced Physics Lab is equipped with a modern 4 x 8 foot optical table that is vibration isolated with an instrumentation rack above it. The lab also has computers for data acquisition and analysis, a 500 MHz bandwidth digital oscilloscope, and an 8 GHz bandwidth spectrum analyzer. The lab supports the advanced laboratory sequence of courses, PH345/UI330 Experimental Methods I and PH445 Experimental Methods II, as well as the Capstone Design courses, EP480 and EP481. Located in Magill 234
The electronics lab is well equipped for both analog and digital electronics. The lab features 6 stations, each with a computer for circuit simulation and data analysis, an oscilloscope, a signal generator, a dual power supply, and a digital multimeter. The lab also has an LCR meter for measurements of individual circuit components. The lab supports the analog electronics course, EP340 Electronic Circuits, as well as the digital electronics sequence of courses, EP305 Digital and Analog System Design and EP310 Microcomputer Interfacing. Located in Rhodes 323

The Magnetic Materials Lab is the research lab used by Dr. Peggy Hill for her work on studying various magnetic materials in collaboration with colleagues at several other institutions. Dr. Hill measures the electrical resistivity of materials at very low temperatures in order to help ascertain their electrical and magnetic properties. Her lab is currently equipped with a four-point resistivity probe, ac susceptibility coil, and a low temperature cryostat for measurements down to 4.2K. Located in Magill 142
The observatory is housed in a trailer at the University's Farm outside Gordonville and is primarily used for the astronomy class PH109. Public sessions can be requested and announced as events unfold and weather permits.
From the I55 exit #99, proceed west toward Jackson. Just as the divided highway ends, turn right onto Orchard Rd. This turns into a gravel road and then ends at a stop sign. Turn left and the observatory is about 1/4 mile on the right on a hill.
The Special Projects Lab is used for the Capstone course projects. In addition it provides facilities for model rocketry and reflective and cylindrical holography. Located in Rhodes 125.
